The Draft Changes of the Law on Moral Damages has been published at last.
The Draft shall be examined, however, at the first glance it is positive, that is in case of violation of three definite rights (the right to live, prohibited treatment and the right to liberty) the draft directly obliges to provide pecuniary compensation. This issue from the ECtHR Case Law. The Draft indicates that the law shall come into effect on 1 November. However, there is a question whether the law shall have a retroactive effect.
I and Artak Zeynalyan believe that it shall have a retroactive effect, at list by the day of the Constitutional Court Decision, till November 2013.
