The Ombudsman 's Report, 2008

The Ombudsman's office has published its Annual Report for 2008. It is available only in Armenian at this point, and I haven't had a chance to read all 275 pages at this point. Harutyunyan is being criticized from all sides for the report, with the government saying his statements are unfounded and not objective. The Opposition, it seems, is critical that the document did not address the events surrounding the elections. Mr. Harutyunyan truly is one of those walking quite a difficult line. As the Opposition has truth on their side, I wonder what the government has on their's to pressure the Ombudsman.
