Ethics Committee to discuss lawmaker’s demeanour today

The Ethics Committee of the National Assembly today convenes a closed-door meeting to discuss the complaint against Republican Party lawmaker Arakel Movsisyan, specifically his ill-treatment of journalists.

Aghvan Vardanyan, Secretary of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutyun, has been appointed a Committee member. He will present the Committee’s decision on the compliant.

The journalists appealed to the Ethics Committee following a December 23 incident at the National Assembly during which MP Arakel Movsisyan insulted journalists who organized a protest in parliament calling them ‘monkeys.’
