SUIT OF “GIND” PRINTING HOUSE VERSUS FOUNDER OF “CHORRORD ISHKHANUTIUN” NEWSPAPER

On October 19 court of general jurisdiction of Kentron and Nork-Marash communities of Yerevan started hearing the case on suit of “Gind” printing house versus “Chorrord Ishkhanutiun” newspaper founder, “Ogostos” LLC. The plaintiff demands to oblige “Ogostos” to pay off the debt for printing costs in the amount of 2 million AMD (about $ 5,200). As Shogher Matevosian, Chief Editor of “Chorrord Ishkhanutiun”, informed YPC, the newspaper founder is not indebted to the printing house, all the expenses are covered on the ground of the contract. According to Shogher Matevosian, the conflict between  “Chorrord Ishkhanutiun” and “Gind” arose because of financial disagreements. Since September 2009, the newspaper is being published at “Mer Tparan” printing house.

On the session of October 19 the plaintiff made two petitions: to involve publisher of “Chorrord Ishkhanutiun”, “Trespassers W.” LLC, as a third party of the case, and to ban the newspaper’s issue. Both of the petitions were secured.

Meanwhile, “Chorrord Ishkhanutiun” newspaper continues to be published in the same frequency.
