Foreign nationals imprisoned in Armenia can now apply for asylum


New amendments to the Criminal Procedures Code and the Law of Armenia "On Detained and Arrested Persons" will allow foreign nationals and stateless persons convicted, detained and arrested in Armenia to apply for asylum.

According to the amendments to the Law of Armenia "On Refugees and Persons Seeking Refuge” asylum applications on behalf of minors can be submitted not exclusively by their parents but also by trustees and guardians.
