BRUSSELES—The European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy (EAFJD) announced that its long-time president, Hilda Tchoboian, has been elected a member of the Regional Council of Rhone-Alpes in France. In order to assume her new responsibilities, Tchoboian has resigned from her duties as President of the EAFJD.
Effective immediately, Kaspar Karampetian has assumed the Presidency of the EAFJD Brussels Office. Karampetian is a past chairman of the Armenian National Committee of Greece and a member of the Board of Directors of the EAFJD.
For more than three decades, Tchoboian has been on the forefront of the struggle for the Armenian Cause in its multiple facets: The recognition of the Armenian Genocide and the question of reparations, the promotion of the rights of European Armenians, the strengthening of the independent Republic of Armenia, the affirmation of the right to self determination of Karabakh, the protection of the rights of the Armenians in Javakhk, the human and minority rights violations in Turkey and the political mobilization of European citizens of Armenian descent.
During the last decade, Tchoboian served as EAFJD President. Together with her staff and colleagues, she worked tirelessly and had major accomplishments in all of the spheres mentioned above. She also helped establish the EAFJD as the premier voice of Armenians in Europe, thus laying a strong foundation for its future growth.
The EAFJD Board wished Tchoboian success in her new endeavors.
