International Human Rights Defenders Committee has assigned Armenian Ombudsman's Office the highest status of "A" class for independent, impartial and efficient activity.
The Committee had been studying the work of the Armenian Human Rights Defender's Office for two years and arrived at a conclusion that the Office operates in line with the Paris Principles and "A" class standards. The new status will enable the Armenian Ombudsman to voice the country's problems at the UN and other influential international organizations.
