There must be a radical change in the personnel policy of “ArmForest” branches, and the whole staff must be changed 100%, as Tavush Regional Head Hayk Chobanyan told reporters on June 10. "In the past, the employees of "ArmForest" were connected with "criminal structures" and "law enforcement agencies" which backed deforestation. That is why the changes there must be radical. Legislative grounds must be established. Labor law does not allow these people to be fired directly. But I think there is a need for that." Chobanyan noted and added that instead of dismissed officials, those positions may be occupied by demobilized soldiers or former officers.
Touching upon the issue of deforestation in Tavush Region, the head noted, "We can state that the mass deforestation in Tavush Region has been eliminated, and the existing illegal cases are mainly detected and are proceeded accordingly.”
