| Germans propose passing of bill that considers Armenian Genocide’s denial unlawful
July 8, 2012
Around 157,000 Germans expressed an online wish for Germany to adopt a law which deems Armenian Genocide’s denial illegal, Reuters News Agency informs.
These citizens note that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has focused on the eurozone crisis, in the case when the country’s population is concerned with other matters as well as reviewing historical developments.
And among such matters, the Armenian issue has the most number of supporters in the online voting and surveys. Approximately 157,000 Germans said they wish for Germany to pass a law which will consider unlawful the Armenian Genocide’s denial and the refusal to recognize the Armenians’ mass killings as genocide.
This week Chancellor Merkel met with some participants of the German government’s online survey, during which she rejected this proposal, Reuters informs.
