Apartment Offered by Akhtala OPC Not Adequate Compensation for Danielyan’s Family: Oleg Dulgaryan

EcoLur

Oleg Dulgaryan, Chairman of the Center for Community Mobilization and Support NGO, member of the EITI MSG, welcomes the offer of compensation to the family of Harutyun Danielyan, who lives near Nahatak tailing dump in Akhtala, but he does not consider it as adequate compensation.

In this regard, Oleg Dulgarian considers that the offer of compensation made to Harutyun Danielyan in Shamlugh settlement of Akhtala community is a disproportionate offer compared to the damage suffered by the Danielyan family. This apartment is also located in a contaminated area, near the Shamlugh open mine.

I urge the administration of Akhtala OPC CJSC to continue the dialogue with the Danielyans family and to discuss appropriate offsetting mechanisms.
