YEREVAN, AUGUST 31, NOYAN TAPAN. The judgement of the California Court
of Appeal is the loss of all nations of the world. Director of AAA
Armenian and NKR offices Arpi Vardanian expressed such an opinion at
a press conference on August 28.

To recap, according to the law adopted by California State Parliament
in 2000, the heirs of the 1915 Genocide victims can sue the insurance
companies till 2010 and get a compensation. A German company had also
been sued.

However the latter applied to the court demanding to recognize that
law as an anti-constitutional one. The protest was dismissed, then
it was appealed in the Court of Appeal and a judgement was issued in
favor of the German company this year on August 20.

According to A. Vardanian, with such refutations and denials the
nations of the world are in danger. According to her, that decision
will hamper the process of prevention of both Armenian and other
genocides.

A. Vardanian noted that AAA applied to U.S. President Barack Obama's
administration to get some explanations.
