French Senate criminalizes Armenian Genocide denial

The French Senate adopted in a secret vote on Friday a bill criminalizing the Armenian Genocide denial, Tert.am reports.

The measure was backed by 156 lawmakers attending the debate in the parliament’s upper house. Some 146 senators voted “against”, according to Murad Papazyan, President of the Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations of France (CCAF).

The bill, proposed as an amendment to the law on “Equality and Citizenship”, earlier received support by the National Assembly, the lower chamber of France’s parliament. It calls for measures to establish criminal liability for crimes against humanity, including attempts to deny and negate the Armenian Genocide.
