YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–"The threats to the press uttered at the March 3 news conference are not new. When someone lies–he must shut the mouth of the one who tells the truth. It is a law. So the attack against the press is understandable but inadmissible," Editor of the "Hayots Ashkharh" newspaper Gagik Mkrtichian told Noyan Tapan.
He expressed confidence that both press and society are strong enough–and will not allow anyone "to speak from the position of strength–and put an end to our only achievement in the last ten years–freedom of speech."
