“Trchkan” and Pan-Armenian Environmental Front civic initiative members have applied to RA Human Rights Defender Karen Andreasyan in regard with the problems arisen due to the construction of “Khachaghbyur-2” SHHP on the Paghjur tributary to the Aghstev River implemented by “MegaEnergy” LLC. The application particularly says:
“Still on 03.10.2012 a group of residents of Getahovit community, Tavush Region, applied to You with the expectation to get legal aid. On the basis of this application, you referred to Nature Protection Minister requesting him to assign the proper bodies to examine the problem in tight deadlines and to submit information about non-adherence to legal grounds. So far Getahovit community villagers and public are not aware what kind of information Nature Protection Minister has provided to you and what kind of measures you have taken to raise the legitimate and just requirements posed by Getahovit community villagers and to give legal solutions to them.
