The Historical Complex is being Destroyed informs that according to Marie Chakryan, president of the “Center for Public Awareness and Monitoring” alarmed that a green area of Dalma Park occupied with 20 year old enormous trees had been destroyed the day before.

In an interview with environmental information website, Yerevan Municipality’s Information and Public Relations Department said it was a private company territory.

In the result of the research by “Center for Public Awareness and Monitoring” NGO in Dalma Park found out a series of important issues which question the legitimacy of ownership of the properties in general, as well as the privatization process carried out years ago.

Dalma Park is a unique complex abundant in biodiversity and ancient historical and cultural monuments. After the independence, it was decided to provide the territories for rent, and not for privatization. After the deadline, the contracts were renewed. During one of the contract renewal processes, it turned out that the territories had already been privatized in the case that they periodically applied to the municipality for privatization but were rejected because it is a historical and cultural area.

Currently, Dalma Park occupies 50 hectares territory, but in the past the park started from Tsitsernakaberd hill and stretched to the Zvartnots temple.
