Sh. Torosyan: “Some opposition activists in Javakhk now face the danger of arrest”


Today the chairman of the “Javakhk” union, deputy of Armenian Republican Party fraction Shirak Torosyan met journalists and spoke about some problems which Armenians face in Javakhk.

According to the speaker the lack of working places is one of the main problems in Javakhk. Shirak Torosyan informed that they have started negotiations with the Armenians with Javakhk origin who live abroad and offered them to work out some programs which would let make investment in Javakhk. “It will let open some new working places and the social tensions will be reduced”.
Sh. Torosyan also underlined that the social-economic tensions has been increased especially after Russian base left the region. Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili announced then that they would take all storing for Georgian Army from Javakhk it was not fulfilled.

“Today cheap potatoes are brought from Georgia, so the Armenians in Javakhk have to sell their potatoes too cheap. This makes people do not be engaged in agriculture as it is not profitable”, the deputy underlined.

According to the speaker protection of the Armenian language is the next important problem in Javakhk.

“Lessons for Armenian language are reduced and instead of it children are taught Georgian more. We are not against Georgian language and if people do not know Georgian in Javakhk educational community is guilty for it. But it is unacceptable that Georgian language is taught instead of Armenian language.”

Answering to the question how they would struggle against the pressure in Javakhk Sh. Torosyan said that they would ask the Georgian authorities to reduce pressure against the national minorities.

“We also will try to present the question in European Council.”

The deputy also said that the attacks against Armenians in Javakhk might have political context. According to him some opposition activists in Javakhk now face the danger to arrest. As a proof of his words Torosyan informed that opposition activist George Mkhchyan is arrested on the eve of the elections in autumn. Another opposition activist, former deputy of the Georgian Parliament Melik Raisian is also arrested.

Shirak Torosyan was also asked whether the change of the Georgian Prime Minister would change something for Javakhak. “It is really difficult to make predictions of the changes. I would not say that the PM had made some steps towards the Javakhk issue, even the opposite. But he is a strong person and has great experience of changes so I hope that some reforms will be held for Javakhk as well.”
