Sanitek—the foreign company which used to carry out waste management in Yerevan—closely follows the domestic political events and developments at Yerevan Municipality and around the Mayor. The management of Sanitek has issued a statement in this regard.
"What is happening is clearly aimed at driving Sanitek company out of the market, which is coupled with illegal, arbitrary and discriminatory practices which are endorsed by the establishment of the Yerevan Waste Disposal and Sanitation community establishment and its subsequent activity," the statement also read. “Unlawful, arbitrary and discriminatory unlawfulness against the company continues to this day.
The Company remains convinced that expropriation has been applied to it as a foreign investor.
The deadline for responding to the company’s notification of the arbitration dispute addressed to the Government of the Republic of Armenia within the framework of the pre-arbitration process has expired in November. The government has not reacted to the notification in any way and has not provided any response in this regard."
