Today, a discussion on the amendments made to the Law "On making amendments and supplements to the Law of the Republic of Armenia "On compulsory enforcement of judicial acts"" and related laws, was held with the participation of First Deputy Minister of Justice Rafik Grigoryan.

According to the Deputy Minister, the Law ''On compulsory enforcement of judicial acts" was adopted on 5 May 1998, after which the legal system of the Republic of Armenia underwent several institutional changes, and this led to a situation where the Law had a number of flaws and contradictions and did not comply with the practice established based on the decisions of the Constitutional Court, the Court of Cassation, as well as the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights.

''Besides, the existence of certain issues in the field of compulsory enforcement also had a negative impact on the business environment in the Republic of Armenia, including on the position of the Republic of Armenia in the 'Doing Business' Report of the World Bank,'' Rafik Grigoryan noted, adding that, taking this into consideration and with the purpose of raising the level of effectiveness of enforcement proceedings, an action aimed at making amendments to the Law ''On compulsory enforcement of judicial acts" was envisaged, and within the scope of this, the “Centre for Legislation Development and Legal Research” Foundation of the Ministry of Justice developed this Law, which provides for supplements and amendments to the Law "On compulsory enforcement of judicial acts" and which was adopted by the National Assembly after wide-format discussions were held and an agreement was reached.

According to the Deputy Minister, this is a major document, as it is aimed at raising the level of effectiveness of enforcement proceedings, raising the level of protection of the rights of persons involved in enforcement proceedings, solving many practical problems that the Compulsory Enforcement Service faces during implementation of its activities, etc. We hope that the effectiveness of the prescribed regulations will be seen during enforcement of the Law.

Rafik Grigoryan emphasised that the Ministry attaches importance to the holding of such discussions and expressed gratitude to the Union of Banks of Armenia for its major assistance in organising the discussion.

Afterwards, the participants engaged in an interesting discussion.

Representatives of the Central Bank, the Union of Banks, the State Commission for the Protection of Economic Competition, the banking system, as well as advocates, professors, deputies of the National Assembly, judges of the Court of Cassation, the Court of Appeal and the First Instance Court, representatives of the Judicial Acts Compulsory Enforcement Service, the State Revenue Committee, the Cadastre Committee and others participated in the event.
