The South Caucasus Network of Human Rights Defenders

Armenia: The Network meets with OSCE/ODIHR Director Ambassador Lenarcic
On April 6, 2010 OSCE/ODIHR Director Ambassador Janez Lenarcic and OSCE/ODIHR Human Rights Adviser Benjamin Moreau met with the Network members from Armenia. Representatives from the Human Rights House Foundation, international partner of the Network, and Human Rights Center, coordinator in Georgia, also participated in the meeting.

The Network members updated OSCE/ODIHR about the situation of human rights defenders in the South Caucasus and the work of the Network. The members from Armenia also focused on post-election violence in 2008 and subsequent persecutions against the political opposition. The results of the Trial Monitoring Project carried out by the ODIHR in the aftermath of those events were also discussed by the participants.

At the end of the meeting, Ambassador Lenarcic expressed interest in continuous cooperation with the Network.
