In order to present the essence of transitional justice, mechanisms of application, and the necessity of its introduction in Armenia the civil society-government forum “The Possibilities of Introducing Mechanisms of Transitional Justice in the Republic of Armenia in the Light of International Experience” was held on 28 November.
The Head of the European Union Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski, welcomed participants: “The EU, as the largest contributor to the transitional justice (TJ) process, especially in its neighbourhood, can offer best experience and advice on how to connect this process with overall justice reforms. That said, we will never try to give even a hint of advice on how TJ should be conducted it in Armenia. The comprehensive and transparent nature of the process is essential, otherwise any TJ efforts will end up with selective justice. I believe that Armenia should make all efforts to avoid this. Irrespective of this decision, the EU will continue its support to the justice sector reform in Armenia”.
