A Yerevan court today threw out the slander suit brought by the Vanadzor Office of the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly (HCAV) against Vladimir Gasparyan.
The NGO had sued Gasparyan for remarks he made during an October 2011 interview with the hraparak.am news site and a program called Zinouzh. The organization claims that some of the remarks slandered their good name.
Vladimir Gasparyan, now the Chief of Police in Armenia, made the remarks while serving as the deputy defense minister.
The NGO had demanded that Gasparyan issue a public apology for his remarks and to pay 10 AMD in symbolic compensation.
