"Honorable Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia,
Dear employees of the Prosecutor's Office,
Congratulations on the Day of the Prosecutor's Office and the 105th anniversary of the service of the Prosecutor's Office in Armenia.
It is impossible to overestimate the role of the Prosecutor's Office in the protection and strengthening of lawfulness and the legal order in the Republic of Armenia, and the solution of these issues requires the unbiased and responsible contribution of each employee.
The cornerstone of your activity is the Constitution of Armenia, and the main mission is the protection of constitutionality, democracy and fundamental human rights in our country.
Since the independence of Armenia, the Prosecutor's Office, as a unified system, has undergone a difficult path of establishment, facing many vicious phenomena.
However, in recent years, in the light of the revolutionary democratic reforms and the strengthening of democratic institutions, the role and responsibility of the Prosecutor's Office was amplified, since the Prosecutor's Office is one of the key institutions meant to become one of the main guarantors of these reforms.
The Prosecutor's Office is a solid and united system and the token of its effective operation is the expertise, professionalism and dedicated work of the employees.
At the same time, I am confident that the continuous replenishment of the system with young and knowledgeable lawyers forms the quality potential of the Prosecutor's Office for the exercise of its constitutional powers.
Once again, I congratulate you on your professional holiday. I wish you new successes in the fulfillment of your responsible mission, sound health and family happiness."
