Lydian Armenia CJSC has filed a lawsuit against lawyer Nazeli Vardanyan and is seeking compensation of 1 million drams in damages, "Green Armenia" NGO reports.
As per the respective statement released by this NGO, the company says their business and reputation have been harmed, though along the lines of a similar lawsuit, the judge in the Nazeli Vardanyan case has imposed a burden on the company to prove whether it has a good business reputation.
The suit was filed against Vardanyan for the following statement: "Why a 80mn money is transferred to Jermuk fund when Jermuk is not an impacted community? What does it mean? It's a form of bribery, there is no other option."
Lydian Armenia wants this information publicly denied.

However, Nazeli Vardanyan was not notified of the case, and they immediately passed on to trial without notifying her.
