Opposition parties ofArmenia  urge government to cancel fines for not  wearing masks
ArmInfo. Secretary of the Bright Armenia faction Gevorg Gorgisyan appealed to Armenia's Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan with a request to cancel the fines for not wearing masks against RA citizens registered in the family insecurity  assessment system. Gorgisyan's statement, in particular, notes: "Prime Minister Nikol  Pashinyan, many citizens who are in extremely unfavorable social  conditions were fined for wearing masks in Armenia. Many of them are  registered in the family insecurity assessment system, and they do  not have the opportunity to pay this fine. Many cases are at the stage of enforcement proceedings and  representatives of the Service for the Compulsory Enforcement of  Judicial Acts have the right to receive fines from these citizens.  Considering all of the above, I urge you to abolish fines for these  citizens>,  Gorgisyan concluded.   It should be noted that the working group of ARF Dashnaktsutyun,  Prosperous Armenia and Homeland parties today made a similar joint  statement. The statement stated that they have developed a project in  which they advocate the abolition of fines, for the absence of masks.  "Given the difficult socio-economic situation in the country due to  the coronavirus epidemic, the growth of unemployment and poverty, the  working group decided to develop a project to abolish the fines  applied in connection with the violation of the legal regime of the  state of emergency. In the near future the "Prosperous Armenia" party  will put this project into circulation in the National Assembly," the  statement says. The parties also intend to make a court decision to  challenge unreasonable fines for not wearing of a mask.
