The full text of the letter reads (original grammar and punctuation were preserved):
“I express my regret regarding the accident that recently happened in the Parliament of Republic Armenia, in the context of the International Conference titled “The European Legal Standards and the Scope of Discretion of Powers in the Member-States of the Council of Europe”, organized by Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia.
The allegations of parliamentary advocate Aurelia Grigoriu, certainly do not reflect the position of national institution for the protection of human rights from the Republic of Moldova in so sensitive issue.
The Center for Human Rights of Moldova as well as the ombudsman institutions from other states is one apolitical, and its activity is focused exclusively on the monitoring of human rights observance.
The ombudsman Offices from Moldova and Armenia maintained constantly lasting relations of cooperation and mutual support, the allegations of parliamentary advocate Aurelia Grigoriu should not be a reason of discord between the two institutions.
I hope what has happened recently in Yerevan will not affect the traditional relations of esteem and good cooperation between national institutions for human rights protection from Republic of Moldova and Republic of Armenia. I take this opportunity to reaffirm the ombudsman institution openness for cooperation into realisation of the goals for promovation and protection of human rights in our countries.
Director of the CHRM, Parliamentary Advocate
To Mr. Karen Andreasyan
Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia”
Earlier Armenian News-NEWS.am informed that the attempts of Moldova’s corrupted lawyer Aurelia Grigoriu to provoke a scandal and damage Armenia’s image have ruined. Madame Grigoriu, a participant of Yerevan-hosted international conference, deliberately locked herself in her room and refused to participate in the program following her provocative speech and statements about “occupied territories” voiced in the Armenian parliament.
According to many journalists, Grigoriu was bribed by Azerbaijani officials, which whom she maintains intimate relations and whom she visited for many times in Baku (the media paid attention to the fact that the corrupted lawyer removed from her Facebook account all photos which prove close relationship between Moldovan lawyer and Azerbaijani officials).
