APA reports quoting “Novosti Armenia” that the author of this bill is parliamentarian from the Union for a Popular Movement Valérie Boyer.

The bill is based on the article “Criminalizing denial of genocide and military crimes” adopted by the European Parliament. The new bill considers one-year imprisonment and a fine of € 45 000 to those who deny “Armenian genocide”.

Last year the Constitutional Court prevented the enactment of the bill citing to its contradiction to the freedom of speech.
