Having studied the publications in electronic mass media, ‘Protection of Rights without Borders’ NGO recorded a low level of trust in the Armenian law and judicial system since the justice is conducted with abuse of law and selectively.

At the Media Center Haykuhi Harutyunyan, head of ‘Protection of Rights without Borders’ NGO; and Hayk Tadevosyan, researcher at ‘Protection of Rights without Borders’ NGO, spoke on the study of Electronic Media Coverage Issues of the Legal and Judicial System conducted by their organization, summarizing the results. Alongside with Hasmik Harutyunyan and Hayk Tadevosyan, Arsen Babayan, head of the International Cooperation and Public Relations Service of RA Judicial Department, and Karen Hakobyan, Deputy Head of the Administration of the RA Ministry of Justice, shared thoughts on the issue.

The survey included publications issued from 1 January, 2009 to 31 May, 2013 by 26 electronic mass media.

The survey authors stressed that ‘the focus was only on problematic phenomena and issues; hence, the analysis mostly describes negative critical views and estimates.’ According to Haykuhi Harutyunyan, they did not edit the publications in the report, with all the estimates being quoted verbatim.

Arsen Babayan defined the survey as one-sided and out-of-date because the survey was actually completed a year ago, and during this time considerable changes are made in the judicial system. Additionally, Arsen Babayan stressed his impression that ‘you have sought to substantiate the negative public opinion only. Karen Hakobyan, Deputy Head of the Administration of the RA Ministry of Justice, characterized the survey as incomplete and out-of-date.

Certainly, the representatives of ‘Protection of Human Rights without Borders’ NGO assured that they intend to continue their studies and by 2015 an analysis of the electronic media coverage will be published.
