RA Nature Protection Ministry has sued 'ArmForest' SNCO of RA Agriculture Ministry. 'In 2015 State Environmental Inspection of RA Agriculture Ministry carried out inspections in Stepanavan forestry enterprise of 'ArmForest' SNCO of RA Agriculture Ministry, where 98 illegally felled down trees were detected and environmental damage of 3.106.000 AMD was estimated. 'ArmForest' SNCO' hasn't recovered the statutory damage, so RA Nature Protection Ministry has called upon court with a claim for confiscation,' Armen Vardanyan, Head of Information and Public Relations Department of RA Nature Protection Ministry informed EcoLur.
He mentioned earlier they had similar cases and 'ArmForest' SNCO compensated the damage. In this regard, 'ArmForest' SNCO Director Martun Matevosyan informed EcoLur that they are dealing with detecting culprits of illegal tree felling, who must pay the fine.
