Visit by the IAP Secretary-General and General Counsel to Armenia


The IAP Secretary-General and General Counsel paid a two-day visit to Yerevan, Armenia, at the invitation of Anna Vardapetyan, the Prosecutor General of Armenia, in May 2024.

The Secretary-General and General Counsel met with the Prosecutor General, the Deputy Prosecutor General, the Head of the Department of International Legal Cooperation and two Advisors to the Prosecutor General.  Topics discussed during the meeting included international cooperation, the IAP webinars, confiscation and asset recovery, cybercrime, and the development of professional skills of prosecutors.  The General Counsel also thanked the Prosecutor General for her participation as a member of the Editorial Board of the IAP newsletter.

In addition to the very useful and constructive meetings, the Secretary-General and General Counsel were also given the opportunity to visit some of the key sights in Yerevan, including the Matenadaran Research Institute and Museum and the National Gallery of Armenia.  The IAP would like to thank the Prosecutor General and her team for their kind and welcoming hospitality, and for the contribution made by her office to progressing the objectives of the IAP.

We look forward to continued cooperation between the IAP and the Office of the Prosecutor General in the future.
