The speakers were:
Arthur Sakunts, Chairman of Helsinki Citizens' Assembly-Vanadzor
Daniel Ioannisyan, Program Coordinator of the Union of Informed Citizens
An invitation was sent to Ruben Melikyan, a member of the “No” campaign group, co-founder of Legal Way NGO, former Artsakh human rights defender, who refused to participate in the discussion, arguing that his participation would legitimize the false agenda. Hayk Konjoyan, a representative of the "Yes" campaign headquarters, a member of the NA "My Step" faction, was also invited, who did not respond to our invitation.
During the discussion, Daniel Ioannisyan expressed confidence that no one could give any bribe or commit fraud: "There are several reasons. There is now a political will to fight electoral fraud, with amendments to the Criminal Code substantially changing the penalties for certain acts and making them a serious crime. In this respect, the law enforcement agencies were given a great opportunity to fight a number of acts. ”
He also informed that "If any employer forces its employees to the campaign, or to vote "yes" or "no", to participate in the referendum or to abstain, it is considered a grave offense, up to 6 years in prison. "
Artur Sakunts, head of the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly-Vanadzor Office, voiced another concern: "We have a serious challenge, we are dealing with a whole bunch of misinformation, this difficulty of separating the wet from the dry is a serious factor that will accompany the referendum."
