Armenia PM on Transitional Justice: We Should Not Make Things Worse


During a meeting with representatives of the Armenian community in Austria, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan confirmed that an arrangement had been made so that the National Assembly, and not the government, will lead transitional justice in Armenia.

“I hope that the [different factions within the] National Assembly…will work [together] so that an acceptable mechanism for transitional justice is found,” he said.

Pashinyan noted that initial discussions about a mechanism for the confiscation of property without a guilty verdict had begun but warned that careful discussion is needed to make sure it does not actually make the situation in the country worse. He assured the audience that the government will keep working so that justice is completely restored in Armenia.
