PACE to send monitoring mission to Armenia to get facts on its internal political processes
The Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) will send a mission to Armenia to gather facts due to internal political processes in the country.
"The PACE Monitoring Committee made a decision to promptly send co-rapporteurs on Armenia with a mission to gather facts following the exchange of views on the latest internal political developments in Armenia," Arpine Hovhannisyan, the deputy speaker of the Armenian parliament and the head of the Armenian delegation to the PACE, said on her Facebook account.
"They were instructed to report on the outcomes of the visit at the first meeting of the committee," she said.
On September 12, Hovhannisyan said that the PACE commission on political issues and democracy had discussed the case against former Armenian President Robert Kocharyan and the internal political situation in the country.
The commission would send to the PACE Monitoring Committee a letter suggesting the monitoring of ensuring the rule of law and independence of legislative and judicial authorities be conducted in Armenia, she said.
