Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
The Freedom of Information Center of Armenia has sued the State Committee of the Real Estate Cadastre following the Committee's refusal to provide the Center with free information about Yerevan's Covered Market.
The Center claims that the Committee's refusal is contrary to the information freedom law.
Earlier Mayor of Yerevan Taron Margaryan said that the owner of the market was going to build a many-storied apartment house in the area. That news caused a wave of public protests in the city.
The Covered Market was built in 1952 and is listed as Yerevan's architectural value. In 2012 the owner of the market, MP Samvel Alexanyan, began repairing the facility, with part of it damaged as a result.
