Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan issued a statement on the occasion of the Prosecutor's Office holiday.
"Dear employees of the Prosecutor's Office, Congratulations on the Day of the Prosecutor, on the occasion of the 102nd anniversary of the establishment of the Prosecutor's Office.
Today the expectations of our society and people from the Prosecutor's Office are higher than ever. The people through the non-violent, velvet, people's revolution of 2018 have expressed their clear will to have Armenia, where the rule of law is established, the principle of inevitability of punishment for the crime committed, where an effective fight against the criminal world, abuse and corruption is carried out.
Fulfilling the legitimate expectations of the people in these directions largely depends on the work of the prosecutor's office. The current period is really a serious test for the prosecutor's office, because in many cases the employees of the prosecutor's office must formulate the facts known to the public and defend accusations in court.
How much faith in the consciousness of our people will be established in Armenia, depends on the quality and level of this work. Faith to wether it is possible to establish indisputable legality, democratic order and justice in Armenia or not ?. The implementation of the political promise to return the looted from the people to the people, which was voiced by the political majority and approved by the people, depends on the quality of the work of the prosecutor's office.
In the near future the prosecutor's office will assume the another function - ipmlementation of the RA law on confiscation of property of illegal origin, and this legislative innovation will further increase the public's expectations from the results of the prosecutor's office's activities.
Dear employees of the Prosecutor's Office,
Your work has many complications. Well-known truths are sometimes difficult to formulate in legal language. But this is where the talent and professionalism of the prosecutor's office employee and the prosecutor lies. Here is the mission of the prosecutor. Legal language and what is to be said must be the exact expression of reality, truth, the law must be the defender of truth.
This is the mission of the prosecutor's office. There is no prosecutor's office without this mission. And I wish all of you success on the way to fulfilling this mission. I wish you the ability and determination to go that way to the end.
And, of course, health, happiness and patience to all your families", the PM's statement reads.
