France: Punishment for Armenian Genocide Denial Shouldn't Be Applied to Historians

PanARMENIAN.Net - A leading figure from the ruling People's Majority Unity Party, French Armenian Patrick Devedjian proposed an amendment to the bill penalizing the Armenian Genocide denial. The single-sentenced proposal reads "These regulations do not apply to academic and scientific researches and studies." To remind, the draft submitted by the opposition Socialist Party stipulates those who deny the Armenian Genocide be imprisoned up to five years and fined 45,000 euros. In a statement annexed to the amendment proposal, Devedjian, in reference to Turkey, noted that the bill should prevent any provocations and political demonstrations organized by a foreign country, reported zaman.com.
