My Step: Any limitation of human rights must be lawful, but it is  not an end in itself
ArmInfo. The legislative initiative, which will be discussed at an extraordinary session of parliament, will give us the opportunity to shift from a state of  emergency to a softer regime. Vladimir Vardanyan, a lawmaker from the  "My Step" faction, said this in an interview with journalists on  September 3. He stressed that a softer regime will provide an opportunity to  observe all fundamental human rights, and at the same time establish  mechanisms that will help prevent the spread of coronavirus in  Armenia. "There are similar legislative initiatives in many countries of the  world, and our international colleagues urged us to shift from a  state of emergency to a milder one, provided that the sanitary and  epidemic situation allows this to be done," the lawmaker stressed,  specifying that any restriction on human rights must be legal but  this is not an end in itself. At the moment, there is a legitimate  goal - the protection of public health>, he stressed. To note, on August 27, at a government meeting, Armenian Justice  Minister Rustam Badasyan stated that the state of emergency in  Armenia would not be extended. The Minister noted that the package  was developed jointly with the Ministry of Health. It provides for  the settlement of issues related to the sanitary and epidemiological  situation and the protection of the population in conditions after  the legal regime of the state of emergency.
