ArmInfo. The Committee of  Ministers of the Council of Europe decided to implement the decision  of the ECHR in the case of Muradyan v. Armenia, emphasizing the role  of the Ombudsman of the Republic of Armenia in the issue of civilian  control in relation to the Armed Forces.

Thus, in the office of the RA Ombudsman, it was recalled that last  year the human rights defender for the first time in the CE Committee  of Ministers presented a special position on human rights issues in  the Armed Forces regarding the implementation of the ECtHR's decision  "Muradyan v. Armenia", which indicated a number of principled  positions on the implementation of the verdict and specific proposals  are presented.

Referring to the annual report of the Ombudsman of Armenia for 2018  on protecting the rights of military personnel and protecting the  military from violence, the Secretariat of the Committee of Ministers  emphasized the importance of taking into account the recommendations  and concerns contained in the annual report of the Defender in the  development of state structures.

Recall that in November 2016, the European Court of Human Rights  decided to allocate 50 thousand euros to the family of a soldier  Suren Muradyan who died in 2002 in Nagorno-Karabakh. The court  decided that the military authorities did not properly investigate  the circumstances of his death and did not punish those responsible.  The lawsuit was submitted by Suren's father - Hrachya Muradyan. It  stated that the conscript had died from a serious illness, since  during his service he had not received proper medical care.
