Armenia: Bayatyan v. Armenia . . . Բայաթյան ընդդեմ Հայաստանի


ՄԻԵԿ – ի գործով Բայաթյան ընդդեմ Հայաստանի բերել ձեզ jw նորություններ.



Under Article 41 (just satisfaction), the Court held that Armenia was to pay Mr Bayatyan
10,000 Euros (EUR) in respect of non-pecuniary damage and EUR 10,000 in respect of
costs and expenses.

Հոդված 41 (արդար փոխհատուցում), Դատարանը ին, որ Հայաստանը վճարում պարոն Բայաթյան
10.000 եվրո (եվրո) նկատմամբ ոչ նյութական վնասի եւ 10,000 եվրո առնչությամբ
ծախսերը եւ ծախսերը.

Article 9 did not explicitly refer to a right to conscientious objection. However, the Grand
Chamber considered that opposition to military service – where it was motivated by a
serious and insurmountable conflict between the obligation to serve in the army and a
person’s conscience or deeply and genuinely held religious or other beliefs – constituted
a conviction or belief of sufficient cogency, seriousness, cohesion and importance to
attract the guarantees of Article 9.
Mr Bayatyan was a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a religious group opposed to
service, even unarmed, in the military. The Grand Chamber therefore had no reason to
doubt that his objection to military service was motivated by his religious beliefs, which
were genuinely held and in serious and insurmountable conflict with his obligation to
perform military service. Accordingly, Article 9 was applicable to his case.

Հոդված 9 հստակ չի վերաբերում իրավունքի բարեխիղճ առարկություն. Սակայն, Մեծ
Պալատը գտնում է, որ ընդդիմությունը զինվորական ծառայություն, որտեղ այն հիմնավորվում է
լուրջ եւ անհաղթահարելի հակամարտության միջեւ պարտավորությունը ծառայել է բանակում եւ
անձի կամ խղճի խորապես եւ իսկապես տեղի է ունեցել կրոնական եւ այլ համոզմունքներին – սահմանված
համոզմունք կամ համոզմամբ բավարար անժխտելիություն, լրջությունը, համերաշխության եւ կարեւորությունը
գրավել երաշխիքները: Հոդված 9.
Պարոն Բայաթյան անդամ էր, որ Եհովայի վկաների մի խումբ կրոնական տարբերություն
ծառայություն, նույնիսկ անզեն, զինվորական. Մեծ պալատը, հետեւաբար, ոչ մի պատճառ
Կասկածից վեր է, որ իր առարկության զինվորական ծառայության էր հիմնավորվում է իր կրոնական համոզմունքները, որոնք
անկեղծորեն են անցկացվում, իսկ լուրջ եւ անհաղթահարելի հետ հակամարտության իր պարտավորություն

With the new system, blood sugar is monitored even while a person is asleep, Weinzimer says. That’s important because dangerous dips in blood sugar at night, while the patient is sleeping, are one of the greatest risks faced by children and adults with type 1 diabetes, he tells WebMD. The episodes can cause seizures and even sudden death.

Jehovah’s Witnesses in Utah to take big step.


A lot of people know a little about Jehovah’s Witnesses.

They know members go door-to-door to spread the faith. They know they don’t celebrate holidays or birthdays. Maybe they know that Witnesses believe we are living in “the last days,” a time of war, wickedness and destruction before God’s Kingdom will come to rule the Earth.

FYI – Targeting The World’s Worst Religious Persecutors.


The most important test of a government’s legitimacy is whether it protects basic human rights, most obviously life and liberty. The foundation is freedom conscience, including religious liberty. Governments unwilling to respect their citizen’s faith in God and view of the transcendent are not likely to treat people with dignity in other ways.
