Valerie Boyer, author of the resolution penalizing the denial of
Armenian genocide allegations that was approved by France last
month, said she received death threats. Boyer, also a lawmaker from
President Nicolas Sarkozy's conservative UMP party, said to BFM TV
she was shocked when she received death and rape threats following
the approval of the resolution. Boyer filed a criminal complaint
about the threats Dec. 26. Boyer's website was hacked following the
approval of the resolution. Interior Ministry officials told French
daily Le Figaro that Boyer will be inconspicuously protected.
