Hot reporting from 5 Komitas Avenue and 10/5 Sayat Nova Street

With the assistance of civic activists the residents of Yerevan 3, 5a and 7 Komitas Avenue fought against the construction of a multistory building for months by Liber LLC. However, numerous people were detained by police. Law enforcement bodies committed violence and exhibited non adequate behavior in favor of the private company and against the society. Administrative procedures were pursued against numerous citizens and activists. Susanna Terzyan was one of the few people who continues to be engaged in the issue. In her opinion they had lost the case since money played a dominating role in everything. The owner of the building told them. “I have given lots of money. Let them compensate me and the building would not be constructed.” Should legality prevail, the construction would have stopped till the end of the trail. “What should the people do, if they witness how the building is constructed just in front of their eyes?” – said Terzyan.
