07.06.2021 | The RA Prosecutor General Artur Davtyan held a meeting with law enforcement agencies in Syunik region

The RA Prosecutor General Artur Davtyan visited Syunik region today and held a meeting in the Prosecutor's Office of the region with the participation of heads of regional law enforcement agencies regarding ensuring the legality during the parliamentary elections scheduled for June 20.

 

Taking into account that the parliamentary election campaign officially started on June 7, Artur Davtyan noted that, especially at this stage, it is very important to ensure the proper conduct of the campaign in accordance with the law, without criminal incidents, by taking the necessary security measures. This need is especially obvious in Syunik region, taking into account the issues of ensuring border security.

 

According to the Prosecutor General, the region's law enforcement agencies are obliged to take preventive measures in order to prevent any interference with the free expression of the will of voters. In such cases, one should immediately use the criminal procedure mechanism and give a legal assessment to each specific case.

 

The Prosecutor General also warned law enforcement officers about the need to unconditionally comply with the legislative requirement of political restraint, as well as about the inevitability of legal consequences as a result of being involved in an illegal process which goes beyond their competence. According to Artur Davtyan, such manifestations are unforgivable and should not be allowed to violate public confidence in the observance of impartiality in the fight against electoral violations.
