Statement of crime

This notice was sent to the Prosecutor General’s office of the Republic of Armenia on May 10, 2018.

On May 8, 2018 a statement about a threat against the organization was sent to the email address of the Prosecutor General’s office of RA by the Public Journalism Club. In the statement we have informed the Prosecutor General office that insulting and reprisal-related comments have been posted on the Facebook page of the “A public glimpse into a closed world” project which is funded by the EU and Open Society Foundations Armenia and implemented by the Public Journalism Club and For Equal Rights NGOs. The author of the comment went even farther threatening with “shooting”.

Taking into consideration the life-threatening danger contained in the comment, the Public Journalism Club and its partner “For Equal Rights” organization call for the attention of the relevant structures to this circumstance and urge them to provide a proper assessment of such manifestations of violence.

In addition, we inform that since May 9, 2018 the Facebook page of the author of the threat is no longer available. We are sending the screenshot of the page. We are hopeful that this information will be useful for the investigation.

We hope that such online attacks will be labelled as liable.

Under no circumstances and in no situation the violence, threats and reprisal intimidation can go unpunished.

Seda Muradyan, chairperson of the Public Journalism Club NGO
