At its today's session the Armenian parliament completed discussions on setting up of an ad hoc committee to investigate the March 1 2008 events, offered by the Armenian National Congress faction.
Galust Sahakyan, representing the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, offered to postpone the voting on the draft decision as they want to work on the draft decision together with the opposition. One of the authors if the bill, Gagik Jahangiryan, agreed to offers presented by the ruling party and welcomed the initiative to postpone the vote to the next four-day parliamentary hearings. He said that the 1 March events were not solved, as active investigating actions were not taken.
To recall, on 15 March 2013 the Armenian Parliament's Committee on Legal and State Issues approved a bill on creation of an ad hocparliamentary committee for investigating the Mar 1 2008 events.
