AUTHOR OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE DENIAL BILL SHOCKED AT CONSTITUTIONAL COUNCIL'S STATEMENT

Valerie Boyer, a member of the French National Assembly who
represents the Bouches-du-Rhône department, is shocked at the French
Constitutional Council's statement on the bill criminalizing denial
of genocides.

The Council actually made different decisions on two genocides:
the Jewish Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide were not equally
considered. She regrets the Constitutional Council's ruling and is
determined to discuss a new bill with the government. If the Armenian
Genocide was officially recognized, any denials must be punished. This
meets the standards of justice, equality and human rights, Boyer says.
