First to Terminate Contract, Then...
“Hovazadzor” LLC, which was building a restaurant in Khosrov Forest, has been warned, if it doesn’t give its consent to terminate rental agreement in Gilan Section in “Khosrov Forest” State Reserve, this matter will be tried in court. The working group of Nature Protection Ministry made such a decision at the expanded meeting on 30 July.
Reminder: the construction was launched in the frames of government decision on lowering the status of Gilan section from reserve to wildlife preserve. Then after active public campaign for this reserve, the government made a new decision and returned its former status to Gilan. Thereby, “Hovazadzor” LLC having been issued a permit for site development lost legal grounds to continue the construction.
