February 17, 12:00

A discussion on “Are the Reforms in the Parole System of the Prisoners Realistic?” was held at Media Center on February 17. 

Suren Krmoyan, RADeputy Minister of Justice, Gohar Simonyan, Head of Torture and Ill-Treatment Prevention Department, Human Rights Defender of Armenia, Arthur Sakunts, Head of Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office, Robert Revazyan, Advocate at the Helsinki Committee of Armenia, participated in the discussion.

On February 7, the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia passed a vital initiative to simplify the parole system. As responsible government agencies say, as a result of the changes, the parole system will be simpler and clear criteria will be set, which will be on the basis of an independent commission and court reasoned decisions.

Suren Krmoyan presented specifically what changes would occur in the parole system. “The institutional system is simplified; we had a three-tier system - decision-making penitentiary, independent commission, and court. We cut a tier here, the penitentiary will not participate, will not dismiss or suffice motions,” Krmoyan said.
