The NSS does not respect the constitutional order: The announcement of the NGOs

On February 10, 2021 the RA NSS Border Troops issued a statement, according to which it is necessary to obtain the permission of the National Security Bodies for the work of journalists in uncertain parts of Syunik region. However, according to credible statements by journalists working on the ground, the border guards began to apply these restrictions days before the announcement.
The undersigned NGOs strongly condemn the statement by the NSS Border Troops that obstructs the legal activities of journalists. The NGOs believe that this is not only a criminal act, but also contradicts the minimum standards of a democratic state governed by the rule of law.

The full statement is available in Armenian
