PanARMENIAN.Net - The Christian religious organization of Jehovah's Witnesses, as well as representatives of the organization submitted a claim against the Public Television of Armenia, as well as journalists Gevorg Altunyan, Sona Torosyan, Nune Alexanyan to the court of general jurisdiction of Kentron and Nork-Marash administrative districts.

Director of the center of rehabilitation and aid for the victims of destructive cults Alexander Amaryan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter that Jehovah’s Witnesses accuse the Public Television of Armenia of “publishing and disseminating wrong information concerning their honor and dignity.”

According to Amaryan, court hearings will start in January.

We would like to recall that 23-year-old resident of Sevan town Arman Torosyan, who killed his parents in November 2010, was declared a member of the organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

While the organization will try to prove during the trial that the criminal is not a representatives of the organization and that similar aggressive behavior is not typical for the organization members.
