The European Armenian Federation welcomes the judgment delivered today by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in the case of Perincek v. Switzerland (no. 27510/08)), in which Armenia was also involved as a third party.
Bedo Demirdjian, who is in charge of Communications & PR at the European Armenian Federation, told the correspondent of Panorama.am that especially commendable is the point, under which the upper chamber changes the lower chamber’s decision that the Armenian Genocide is not a subject for discussion there.
“It is especially important that the European Court itself has stated that we the Armenians have the right to protection of dignity and respect. Yes, we are satisfied with the judgment delivered by Europe’s highest court today,” Bedo Demirdjian said.
