The brother of Garik Aghjyan, a 22 year-old miner who died on February 25 at the #305 Akhtala Mine, says that no one from the company has yet conveyed condolences to his mother.
Many of the miners I met were ready to enter the mines wearing clothes from home. They hadn't received new work uniforms since early 2010.
The review panel revealed that a mere 40 million AMD of the 7.5 billion AMD in revenues of Metal Price, the company that owns the plant, was reinvested in the operation.
Workers say they’ve cheated out of half their New Year’s vacation pay, that they haven’t been provided with work uniforms, and that they are forced to spend their half hour lunch period squatting in the mud.
Rumors had circulated that health problems might lead to some sort of mitigation of the sentence. This wasn’t the case even though Der-Boghossian was transferred to the court from a prison hospital.
The RA Court of Appeals announced that it had found the appeal of convicted pedophile Serop Der-Boghossian baseless and would refuse to hear it.
Hetq also spoke to Prosecutor Aram Amirzadyan who stated that the sentence was in line with the offences committed by Der-Boghossian and was a just verdict.
An court in Armenia today sentenced Serop Der-Boghossian to 15 years imprisonment after he was found guilty of having sex with minors against their will; the maximum sentence allowed.
Metal Prince Ltd owner Serop Der-Boghossian, charged with paedophilia, took a turn for the worse during today’s trial.
