Bill on criminalization of genocide denial submitted to French National Assembly

The French government  has  tabled an amendment penalizing denial of genocide and crimes against humanity under the Equality and Citizenship bill submitted to the National Assembly, Nouvelles d’Armenie reports.

The bill envisages punishment for those who have denied the fact of genocide, crime against humanity, crime of enslavement or exploitation of a disabled person in slavery or war crimes.

The  Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations of France (CCAF) has welcomed this initiative, “which is consistent with the commitments of the President of the Republic.”

CCAF also welcomes the willingness of the government to include the defense of the truth of the Armenian Genocide in the values of the French Republic.
