Ombudsman: Employees of Yerevan Mayor's Office go on breaking human rights

 As a result of lawless actions by employees of the Yerevan Mayor's Office, human  rights of many citizens go on being broken, the statement by Armenian Ombudsman's office says. 

Citizens cannot privatize the territories used by them, as they are often forced to wait for many years or to look for the Mayor's Office employee which will provide personal resolving of their problem. "The process on privatization of the territories of garages, kiosks and other territories of Yerevan being implemented at present, may lead to the corruption cases", - the statement says. 

The reason of this is the fact that the Mayor's Offices uses schemes of zoning Yerevan: in the one case, applications of citizen on privatization of territories are satisfied, and in the other case - are not. "But there are administrative districts in Yerevan for which the projects of the urban zoning are not prepared, and in case of availability of the endorsed schemes, the municipality delays privatization process saying that the schemes need to be finally specified", - the statement says. In many cases the mentioned reasons are groundless, as the projects of the urban zoning  in several districts were endorsed several years ago, and the four-year programme for Yerevan development does not foresee their revising.
