In 2013, the Committee to Protect Freedom of Expression (CPFE) conducted a monitoring of libel and insult cases against the media. The monitoring was made possible with the support of Counterpart International-Armenia. A similar study had been conducted in 2012 as well. The purpose of the study was to follow the developments in court practices since May 18, 2010, when Articles 135 and 136 of the RA Criminal Code were repealed and the law NO-970-N was passed to amend Article 18 of the RA Civil Code (“Protection of Honor, Dignity and Business Reputation”) and to add a new Article 1087.1 that defined the procedures and conditions for providing compensation for damages to one’s honor, dignity or business reputation.
