The Ethics Committee of Armenia's National Assembly today heard the claim of civic activist Vardges Gaspari against Republican MP Samvel Alexanyan.
The Committee chaired by Nikol Pashinyan, an MP of the opposition Armenian National Congress (HAK), is to take a decision within 30 days.
Gaspari lodged the complaint against the Republican lawmaker following a June 21 incident near the National Assembly during which Alexanyan and his men approached Gaspari outside the parliament building where the HAK member [Vardges Gaspari] was protesting against the Harsnakar scuffle, seized the poster he was carrying and knocked him to the ground.
The Ethics Committee also includes Merujan Simonyan (Prosperous Armenia Party-BHK), Hovhannes Margaryan (Country of Law -OEK), Artsvik Minasyan (ARF-Dashnaktsutyun), Zaruhi Postanjyan (HHK) and David Harutyunyan (Republican Party of Armenia - HHK).
Nikol Pashinyan was appointed Chairman of the Ethics Committee on Sept. 19.
