Pope’s Genocide remarks important from legal point of view: Armenia’s Prosecutor General





The European Court of Human Rights will announce the final verdict on Perincek vs. Switzerland case in 5-6 months, Armenian Prosecutor General Gevorg Kostanyan said at the National Assembly today.

“The European Court of Human Rights is not the body that will assert whether there has been an Armenian Genocide or not,” he added.

The Prosecutor General attached importance to the historic Mass in the Vatican. He said the Pope’s statements on the Armenian Genocide come to prove once again the Armenian Genocide is properly acknowledged and perceived internationally. He added that from the point of view of international law this was more important than the fact that one more country recognized the Armenian Genocide.
