HEARINGS ON THE SUIT OF FOI CENTER VERSUS CLINIC No.2 ENDED

On April 27 court of general jurisdiction of Kentron and Nork-Marash administrative districts of Yerevan released the decision on the suit of Freedom of Information Center versus Clinic No.2 LTD. As it has been reported, the reason of the suit was the letter of inquiry of June 10, 2009, requesting to provide information about the procedure of drug allocation to children under 7 years at Clinic No.2, as well as a number of other issues concerning free drugs for children. Having no reply, FOI Center filed a suit obliging the Clinic to provide the requested information, and bring its Head Tigran Khachatrian to administrative responsibility by a fine of 50,000 AMD (about $ 130). At the hearings, started on December 2, 2009, the answer to the inquiry was granted (see YPC Weekly Newsletter, November 27 – December 3, 2009).

At the session of April 27 the court declined the second demand of the plaintiff on imposing an administrative fine on the Head of Clinic No.2.
