їI am very concerned by the delay of investigation with regards to people who died during the March events,ї Davis said to press conference within PACE session on 1 October, answering the question їis there political prisoner in Armenia?ї.

In addition, the Secretary General is concerned by the delay of investigation regarding 13 people who died during the March events. їI said and repeat it again. I have called the Government of Armenia to move. Police also should hold this investigation. Presence of independent commissions does not exempt police from its work. For some reasons, Armenia hides behind the independent commissions established with regards to March events. Police should do its work connected with these events,ї Davis added.
