GYUMRI RESIDENTS NOT TO GET APARTMENTS – LOCAL NGO
The dreams of those families of Gyumri, which were left without a
permanent shelter after the 1988 earthquake, will not come true 24
years after the big disaster, a local NGO has warned.
Shirak Center has said in a statement that a commission tasked with
apartment distribution has not recognized the hundreds of homeless
families as beneficiaries.
The Tarboshyans, one of the families living in a temporary shelter,
are among those unlucky. Under relevant Govvernment decisions, they
were denied an apartment on the grounds that the family’s mother
has died, and the Police Passport and Visa Departments maintains no
residence records about their son, Ashot.
