What a joke!!!

Mr. Aghvan Hovsepyan, who our documentation shows is a key player in the trafficking of Armenian women and children is smack dab in the middle of receiving money from the U.S. in the tune of $2.709 million for a program that will include anti-trafficking work. What an f'ing joke. This reminds me of one of Hovsepyan's former investigators who was also part of the trafficking ring and landed a job at the U.N. in Yerevan which put him at the helm of the anti-trafficking program the U.N. had. To say the least and to the credit of the Department of State, the trafficker was quietly removed from the U.N.

The Department of State knows good and well that Hovsepyan is part of the trafficking ring in Armenia, as that information was provided to them back in 2005. What this means is that for the sake of U.S. foreign policy, they will once again turn a blind eye (as they seem to do too more than I would like to see) to the criminal activities of the present and past Armenian government.

Just remember, complacency in the case when children are involved is viewed as if you are one of the actual perpetrators of the crime. Shame on those who know and are now supporting it with millions of U.S. tax dollars.

Oh and for those of you who don't know, Armenia once again has found itself on Tier 2 Watch List of the State Department's 2008 Trafficking in Persons Report.

The Government of the US will provide 2.709mln USD support to the Armenian Government for the implementation of some projects. Today Mr. Josef Pannington and Aghvan Hovsepyan have signed a decree on drug supervision and cooperation in legal officers' field.

Mr. Aghvan Hovsepyan said that the financial support will be invested in the development of the current field taking into account violations, migration, consultancy, trafficking, etc.
