TWENTY BIG TREES CUT IN PARK AT NIGHT

Residents of 56 Terian and 19 Aghayan staged a demonstration today to
protest against cutting of 20 trees in a nearby park. Ruben Torosyan,
chairman of Human Rights – 96, said the trees were cut at the
suggestion of the municipality and at the permission of the
police. Torosyan also blamed Republican party in violation of law.

Still in 2000, at the decision of Albert Bazeyan, ex-mayor, the park
was provided to Nushikyan Association for building offices, a hotel
and other sties. At the decision of R. Nazaryan the territory was
alienated and further expertise was carried out. `There was no work
on public hearings, nature protection tests or deadlines,’ Torosyan
said.
