NGNGO was engaged in the Advisory Group on Revision of the Draft of the RA New Penitentiary Code
In March 2022, New Generation Humanitarian NGO (NGNGO) was engaged in the Advisory Group on the Revision of the Draft of the New Penitentiary Code (Advisory Group) established by the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia.
The Advisory Group consists of representatives of civil society, the Ministry of Justice and probation, which aims to ensure a more constructive dialogue between the Ministry of Justice and the latters. The group’s work is coordinated by the RA Deputy Minister of Justice, who coordinates the sphere.
The meetings are intense. During the meetings, the NGNGO presented numerous proposals on the project, emphasizing the protection of the multifaceted rights of the most at-risk groups. Most of the proposals were accepted by the Advisory Group.
The work of the Advisory Group coordinated by the Ministry of Justice plays a unique role in improving the draft of the new Penitentiary Code.
