Valerie Boyer, author of the resolution penalizing the denial of Armenian genocide allegations that was approved by France last month, said she received death threats. Boyer, also a lawmaker from President Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservative UMP party, said to BFM TV she was shocked when she received death and rape threats following the approval of the resolution. Boyer filed a criminal complaint about the threats Dec. 26. Boyer’s website was hacked following the approval of the resolution. Interior Ministry officials told French daily Le Figaro that Boyer will be inconspicuously protected.
