The satire news that I made up about Armenian parliament passing an act on human trafficking – with the hope to have the parliamentarians introduce similar act – was noticed by everyone but the Armenian parliament itself.

OSCE was not the only organization that posted the news. Apparently, the news item – picked up from – was included in Stop Violence Against Women, in the October 2007 e-Bulletin of Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women, Gender Information Network of South Caucasus, and others.

I apologize to the above organizations for the false hope that Armenia is doing something to combat human trafficking.  And apparently Armenian lawmakers don’t browse much Internet.
