No to "Nono": Environmentalists Demand Qualified Person for Khosrov Reserve Director

Environmental activists are demanding that the Ministry of the Environment cancels the recent employment tender for the vacant post of director of the Khosrov Forest State Reserve.

The activists (Yeghia Nersisyan, Meri Khachatryan and Anna Shahnazaryan) told reporters today that the competition hadn’t been properly announced and that they hadn’t had time to nominate a truly qualified individual for the job.

The activists also believe that   Gabriel Poghosyan (aka “Nono”), who was recently appointed  as deputy director of the reserve, should not be considered for the top post given that he doesn’t have a college degree and is a poacher.
