YEREVAN. – The residents of Yekmalyan Street in capital city Yerevan, and who have fallen victim to the eminent domain, on Thursday gathered again outside the main building of the government of Armenia, demanding a meeting and discussion of their problem with the relevant bodies.
The patience of the residents—who have been waiting for their new apartments for about 15 years—seems to have run out, and they announced that they will petition to embassies of various countries to request for accommodation.
These persons, who have lost their homes at the aforesaid street and have since lived on rent or in dilapidated houses for many years, are also disappointed by the incumbent authorities’ inaction toward resolving their issue.
The participants of Thursday’s protest added that their respective petitions to the Yerevan city also remain unanswered, and they are unable to meet with Mayor Hayk Marutyan.
