Chairman of the Helsinki Citizens Assembly Vanadzor, human rights activist Artur Sakunts addressed a letter to all the 131 MPs, inquiring about their being proponents or opponents of Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union.
Although Artur Sakunts is aware that the letters sent out on September 9 from Vanadzor reached their addressees, however, none of the 131 MPs has answered his letter.
“I know that the MPs have received my letter, with the same questions for all of them since separate MPs had told “You overflew the NA with letters”. Later some of the MPs called me and told they had received my letter. But I have not so far received a written answer from any of them,” Sakunts told Tert.am.
As to the answers MPs representing different political forces may give, Sakunts said: “I cannot imagine until I see their answers. I addressed individual letters to each of the MPs and each of them is supposed to answer. As soon as I get the replies I will have the overall image”.
He attaches importance to each MP’s opinion. “As representatives of the Legislature making political decisions they are supposed to answer me as a taxpayer, citizen, human rights activist. Each MP’s answer is important for me”, he stated.
Artur Sakunts also informed that the maximum deadline for answers is within one month, which was sent in line with the law on information, besides; it can also be observed within the framework of the RA law on applications and letters.
