RA Administrative Court closed the proceedings against Gladzor Aldermen’s Council, which was initiated on the basis of the application of Vayots Dzor Regional Administration. Vayots Dzor Regional Administration demanded from the court to declare invalid Gladzor enlarged community Aldermen’s Council’s decision No. 44 dated on April 29, 2019 "On turning Gladzor community into an eco-economic area and banning metal mining in the community."
According to the official website of the Judicial Information System, the reason for closing the case was that the dispute was not subject to trial in any court.
The representative of Gladzor community interests, Barrister David Tarverdyan posted on his Facebook page that the regional administration has applied to the Court of Appeal. "The current Regional Head has appealed this decision. The fact that you will lose in the Court of Appeal is definitely certain. Fear the wrath of the people of Vayots Dzor!!! Don't you dare talk about democracy anymore! The population of Vayots Dzor says, "No to the mining industry," he posted.
