PARIS. – Armenians in France are grateful to the French President Nikolas Sarkozy for his Wednesday’s intentions to criminalize denial of the Armenian Genocide in France by removing all the obstacles, the statement by the Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations in France published in Nouvelles dArménie reads.

“The French President stated at the meeting with the representatives of the Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations in France on Wednesday that he is ready to criminalize denial the Armenian Genocide, taking into account the remarks by the Constitutional Council.

The second version should be more unique, effective and guarantee discretion of the judges. Sarkozy will establish a committee, which will include representatives of the Armenian community at the Parliament to form and submit a new bill during Sarkozy’s next office, in case he is elected the president.

Regretting for the fact that the bill criminalizing denial of the Armenian Genocide was not passed during Sarkozy’s current office, the Council is grateful to the President for his willingness to implement it and welcome his commitment to the case,” the statement reads.
