The Armenian Democratic League (Ramgavar party) Western Regional Executive issued an announcement in its official publication Nor Or on Wednesday–April 30–regarding recent advertisemen’s in some local Armenian newspapers for the commemoration of the Armenian Genocide–obviously referring to an event which took place in the evening of April 24 organized by the so-called ."United Body for the Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide"
The announcement clearly stated that the inclusion of the ADL name in the advertisement did not correspond to the actual decisions made by the organizing committee.
"Those advertisemen’s contained the ADL’s name without the prior knowledge or approval by the Regional Executive," stated the correction.
"The Armenian Democratic League had delegated its involvement with the "United Body for the Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide" to the Tekeyan Cultural Association–whose representative also addressed the gathering on behalf of the Tekeyan Association during the said commemoration program," explained the announcement.
