Armenian parliament in the first reading introduced amendments to the  Criminal Procedure Code

ArmInfo. The Armenian parliament at its meeting on April 19 in the first reading made  amendments and additions to the Criminal Procedure Code and the  package of related laws.

According to RA First Deputy Minister of Justice Artak Asatryan, the  package was developed jointly with the office of the ombudsman and is  aimed at the realization of human rights. In particular, when  transferring a prisoner from one prison to another, the opinion of  his relatives and friends should be taken into account in order to  ensure communication between them. In addition to short-term  meetings, long-term meetings are also provided. The current  legislation did not allow for long-term meetings. Prisoners are also  scheduled to meet with their children in orphanages. The size of  permitted purchases made by prisoners will increase from 30 thousand  to 60 thousand drams, which, according to Artak Asatryan, is  necessary taking into account inflationary processes. It is also  proposed to allow convicts to life imprisonment to stay in the same  cell as other prisoners. Currently this right does not apply to them.  Prisoners will have the opportunity to have ID cards. The use of  sanctions against prisoners on treatment is prohibited until the  completion of the treatment process.
