“A criminal case is to be launched immediately based on this video containing an alleged torture case.
All investigative actions should be conducted within criminal proceedings, according to the Criminal Code of Procedure of Armenia.
I will send an officially signed letter to the criminal prosecution body with respective demand tomorrow morning. The case will be under my close attention within the competence of the Human Rights Defender.”
