Based on the report released by the Venice Commission, the Venice Commission has confirmed that the Human Rights Defender of Armenia is an A-Status Ombudsman and National Human Rights Institution NHRI with long experience in the field of protection and promotion of human rights and other specific aspects of the mandate assigned to it by the Constitutional Law. This is what Human Rights Defender of Armenia Arman Tatoyan informed on his Facebook page, adding the following:

“The Venice Commission concluded that the Human Rights Defender of Armenia is an A-status Ombudsman and National Human Rights Institution NHRI with long experience in the field of protection and promotion of human rights and other specific aspects of the mandate assigned to it by the Constitutional Law. This institution, as a key player in strengthening the rule of law, democracy and human rights, can play a key role in their development and consolidation in Armenia, the opinion said.”

A little while ago, the OSCE/ODIHR also adopted a similar document.

At this moment, I can only say that it is a pride when, at the most reputable international levels, it is declared that the Human Rights Defender of Armenia is an A-Status, is not dependent of anyone, is truly independent and has played a key role in the country.

I thank our international partners for assessing our work, and I congratulate our whole personnel for receiving such honorable appreciation.

I will touch upon the essence of the documents in detail soon.”
