Center for Community Mobilization and Support NGO calls on everyone to join the public campaign in support of Harutyun Danielyan's family, who lives 50 meters away from Nahatak Tailing Dump in Mets Ayrum Village in Akhtala Community, Lori Region.
The statement disseminated by the NGO says:
“On February 25, 2020, we hiked to Mets Ayrum Village, Lori Region, in support and protection of the Danielyans family's claim for compensation. When buying home, Harutyun Danielyan was unaware of the tailings dump's high risks to health and agriculture and its subsequent re-operation. Along with the operation of the tailing dump, the problems of Danielyan's family began. Nahatak tailing dump has increased so much that it has reached the level of residential homes.Living in that area has become impossible for the Danielyans family.
According to Harutyun, health problems have been accompanying all family members for years.
The Danielyans family is demanding:
1. Receive compensation for an apartment and land that has become unfit for housing and development.
2. Conduct family health assessments and in-depth medical checkups. Provide free-of-charge thorough treatment for family members in case of illness.
3. Receive compensation for damage caused to health.”
