According to the MP, Armenians in Georgia suffer language, social and religious discrimination - Tert.am.
The region, where Armenians are the most part of population, is deprived of transit ways, medical and social services, the letter says.
The MP added that Chakhalyan, arrested in July 2008, was convicted for 10 years for doubtful reasons, as, in her view, the demands of his movement are of peaceful character.
She also informed the European Commissioner of the appeal on Chakhalyan's case on September 18th, and added that in the course of previous hearings serious violations took place and the activist wasn't even allowed to hire an attorney from France.
The parliamentarian reminded that Georgia received EUR 15 mln for reforms of court system, and urged to demand a request on the reforms in that sphere from the Georgian authorities, and take measures to make Tbilisi comply with its obligations.
