“INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS” WIN THE CASE AGAINST THE YEREVAN MUNICIPALITY

On December 1 the RA Court of Appeals secured the suit of “Investigative Journalists” NGO versus the Yerevan municipality. The court obliged the municipality to provide the resolutions passed by the city administration in 1997-2003 on construction of the green zone around the National Opera and Ballet Theater, necessary for the journalistic investigation. The demand of the plaintiff had previously been rejected by the courts of primary and secondary jurisdiction, and in late October the RA Court of Cassation redirected the case for the consideration of the Court of Appeals in a new composition (see YPC Weekly Newsletter, October 29 – November 4, 2004).
