Decision of the Administrative Court on Gladzor mine exploitation to be released on May 30

19.05.2017

yerevan_19_05.1On 16 May, a court session on Gladzor polymetallic mine was held in the Administrative Court of Armenia. During the court session Arsen Martirosyan representing “Vayk Metal” Company announced that he considered groundless the denial of Gladzor polymetallic mine’s mineral extraction by the Ministry of energy infrastructures and natural resources of the RA and demanded to annul it.

Actually a lawsuit was originally filed not only to the Ministry of energy infrastructures and natural resources of the RA, but was challenged the negative opinion on the EIA of Gladzor Mine issued by the Ministry of Nature Protection. The plaintiff rejected the claim addressed to the Ministry of Nature Protection, considering that MNP’s report is not an administrative act, but evidence.

The details of the trial are available at the references of the Radio Liberty and “EcoLur”:
