FAAE: Armenian media downplays Genocide law in Slovakia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian media pays little attention to the law criminalizing the Armenian Genocide denial in Slovakia, head of the Forum of Armenian Associations of Europe (FAAE) said.

“The scandal involving the Slovakian envoy is also worthy of broad coverage. Everyone to deliberately negate Armenian Genocide in Slovakia will get five years in jail and three years in case of unintentional denial. Given the law, Slovakian ambassador to Armenia and Azerbaijan Josef Migash must be kept accountable for Genocide denial,” Ashot Grigoryan said.

He further noted that Chairman of the Supreme Court Stefan Harabin invited Turkish Minister Egemen Bağış, who already denied Armenian Genocide in Switzerland, to do the same in Slovakia.

In September, 2009, a law criminalizing the Armenian Genocide denial was adopted in Slovakia.
