European Parliament to host a conference on struggle against Genocide denials

PanARMENIAN.Net - The European Armenian Federation, the Jewish Laic Community Centre and IBUKA-France have organized a conference on genocide denial which will take place on Tuesday October 6 from 9.30am in the European Parliament (Brussels).



This conference comes in the scope of the future Pan-European penalization of denial: a decision of the European Union which enforces criminal prosecutions against deniers must be transposed in the 27 Member States legislations before the end of 2010. The conference entitled "Denial and Democracy in Europe" is placed under the patronage of the European deputy Elmar Brok (German Conservative) and aims at explaining to the European Union's policy-makers how far the denial constitutes a perversion of freedom of expression and a threat for the bases of democratic societies, European Armenian Federation reported to PanARMENIAN.Net
