During today's meeting with the Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) Leader Gagik Tsarukyan, the U.S. Ambassador to Armenia John Heffern expressed his concern over the fact that the ex-foreign minister of Armenia, PAP member Vartan Oskanian has been deprived of deputy immunity.
The PAP press service reports the diplomat thinks that depriving Vartan Oskanian of his deputy immunity is bad for justice and democracy in Armenia. He is concerned over the fact that such developments are on the threshold of the presidential elections in Armenia. Nevertheless, the ambassador expressed hope that the Armenian authorities will implement its tasks and will ensure supremacy of law in this issue.
Tsarukyan said that Oskanian's case has been examined by the best lawyers, who have confirmed that the charges are groundless. He promised to closely watch the process so as to ensure its impartiality.
Tsarukyan and Heffern also discussed a wide range of internal political, foreign political and economic problems.
