AT THE XIX YEREVAN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

On 25 October 2014 the XIX Yerevan International Conference resumed its activities. The President of the Constitutional Tribunal of the Republic of Poland Mr. Andrzey Rzeplinski was chairing the fourth session of the Conference. During this session the Judge of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina Mr. Zlatko Knezevic, the Judge of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Turkey Mr. Engin Yıldırım, the Judge of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Serbia Mr. Tomislav B. Stojkovic, the Judge of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Tajikistan Mr. Karim Karimov made thematic reports and presentations. The fourth session was also concluded with discussion of the presented reports.

The President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia Mr. Gagik Harutyunyan was chairing the fifth and final session of the Conference. During this session the Judge of the Constitutional Court of the Kingdom of Belgium Mrs. Trees Merckx-Van Goey, the President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Moldova Mr. Alexandru Tenase, the Judge of the Constitutional Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan Mr. Victor Malinovskij, the Justice at the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Bulgaria Mr. Roumen Nenkov made thematic reports and presentations. The fifth session was also concluded with discussion of the presented reports.

Afterwards, the President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia Mr. Gagik Harutyunyan summed up the activities of the Conference. In particular he stated: “I would like to present for your consideration several basic notes. Though our knowledge in regard of dignity is quite rich, however it is still not systematized enough to allow us to present identical formula, as well as to have joint doctrinal approaches in regard of this principle or implementation of this constitutional institute. It may sound paradoxical, but currently there are two main concepts which could be described by the above mentioned situation: dignity and the rule of law. Recently, at the Venice Commission we have turned to the essence of the rule of law, and by the end of discussion we have questioned ourselves what is the essence of rule of law and which are the joint European criterion in this regard? As you know, there were organized several conferences regarding this topic, as the one organized in Brighton, the UK. On 2012 even the United Nations turned to this matter and adopted resolution on the rule of law. Last year in Yerevan we convened the Pan-European Conference titled “The European Legal Standards of Rule of Law and the Scope of Discretion of Powers in the Member-States of the Council of Europe”, which gathered around 40 states delegations. Today the debates and discussions on this topic continue. We need these discussions in order to be able to have some precise guidelines. This year conference has allowed presenting the issue under discussion in broad framework, as well as it has given us a chance to get acquainted with various doctrinal approaches. It is very important that first of all we deal with the issue under discussion from the viewpoint of self-appraisal of person and we consider this matter in its cultural context. And the question to be asked is, at last with what is conditioned the person's self-appraisal? Is the person's self-appraisal also universal, or is it phenomena conditioned with the specific social environment? It is also very important to consider, how that self-appraisal becomes the cornerstone shaping person's and citizen's behavior. The person's social behavior, the government's public and political behavior and the values shaping that behavior are exceptionally important for our legal relations. Both directly and indirectly we get to the conclusion, that if the principle of the rule of law is in the ground of person's social behavior and the government's public behavior, we can also deal with the question what manifestations and evaluation can have the self-appraisal of dignity. From this viewpoint, in my belief, the question should be dealt from the following angle: person-state relations and interpersonal relations. Accordingly, the topic under discussion should be considered both on vertical and horizontal relations platform. From this point of view, the practice of the constitutional courts seems to have similarities and we try to see the solution of this matter in the frames of peculiarities of examination of each specific case and we try to find out, how this or that influence raise the issue of limitation of right or violation of dignity.”

Mr. Harutyunyan, while turning to the activities of the “virtual constitutional court” established during the XIX International Conference, stated, that in the beginning of the Conference all participants received questionnaire, which they completed and submit to the Conference's Secretariat during the activities conference. In the initial questionnaire there were listed 36 rights, and the participants gave positive feedback in regard of all of them. Worth to mention, that the participants have added two more rights to the list, which are also important for guaranteeing the implementation of right to dignity. Particularly, the participants indicated right to property and right to dignified living standards.

Afterwards, President Harutyunyan presented the list of minimal required rights for implementation of human's right to dignity. The list was prepared by the “virtual constitutional court”:

- right to life;

- right to freedom;

- right to respect and protection of dignity;

- right to security and integrity;

- equality before law;

- prohibition of torture, inhumane and degrading treatment;

- protection from arbitrary interference of the state bodies;

- prohibition of slavery and forced labor;

- prohibition of medical and scientific experiments without the person’s consent;

- respect towards the memory of a died;

- right of detainees to humane conditions of detention;

- autonomy of a person;

- protection in the sphere of medicine and genetic technologies;

- presumption of innocence;

- right to respect and protection of private life;

- right to legal protection.

The international “virtual constitutional court” stated, that the essence of constitutional status of human dignity is fully prescribed by the constitutional provisions of the following states:

1. Constitution of Poland, Article 30: “The inherent and inalienable dignity of the person shall constitute a source of freedoms and rights of persons and citizens. It shall be inviolable. The respect and protection thereof shall be the obligation of public authorities”.

2. Basic Law for Federal Republic of Germany, Article 1 (1): “Human dignity shall be inviolable. To respect and protect it shall be the duty of all state authority”.

3. Constitution of Belgium, Article 23: “Everyone has the right to lead a life in keeping with human dignity”.

The XIX Yerevan International Conference concluded its activities.

All presentations and the other related materials of the Conference will be published by the Organizers in the four-lingual “Almanac – 2014”

While concluding his speech, Mr. G. Harutyunyan wished creative atmosphere and productive work to the participants of the Conference.

The President of the Republic of Armenia H.E. Mr. Serzh Sargsyan also addressed the participants of the Conference. In the address it was particularly stated “Honorable participants of the Conference, I am very glad that distinguished constitutionalists from more than twenty countries have once again arrived to Armenia to examine an issue of exceptional importance, namely, the constitutional status of human dignity. The issue under discussion becomes more significant for us in the context of the important constitutional reforms undertaken by the Republic of Armenia. Just a few days ago the Professional Commission presented the concept of constitutional reforms. It was discussed and approved also at the Plenary Session of the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe, and it will soon enter the stage of political discussions.”

In his address, the President of the Republic of Armenia also gave big importance to the constitutional institution of human dignity and necessary legal mechanisms for its implementation, which have cornerstone significance for the Constitution. The President of the Republic of Armenia expressed his belief, that the reports and further developed discussions at the XIX Yerevan International Conference over the issue under discussion would play a big role both from the perspectiveс of constitutional developments and the practice of constitutional justice.

FALSE INFORMATION

“ELQ” info-analytical webpage has posted a report (which has also accordingly been reposted by the several newspapers, particularly by “Zhoghovurd” (edition of 25 June 2014)), according to which in accordance with the provisions of the Law of the Republic of Armenia on the “Persons Holding State Positions” the pensions of the judges will be cut and respectively the pensions of the Members of the RA Constitutional Court will be raised.

We want to state that this is an absolute disinformation, as the pensions of the Members of the RA Constitutional Court have not been raised in accordance with any law. For the current Members of the RA Constitutional Court has been preserved the existing stance, and the newly appointed members will receive a way lower pension, as the rest of the judges.

With the reference to the topic, we consider that it would be much better to wait for the final version of the law, thus being able to avoid posting of non-clarified information.
