Freedom House notes with concern the recent criminal case opened against a Facebook user who insulted Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in a comment. This is stated on the Facebook page of Freedom House. The statement also reads as follows:

“This comes only two months after the Parliament passed amendments criminalizing “serious insults” against government officials, and signifies a clear degradation of democratic norms in Armenia, including freedom of expression. We call on the Armenian authorities to immediately cease enforcement of this unconstitutional legislation criminalizing defamation.”
