ArmInfo. Information presented by various individuals in recent days that investigators and experts of the Investigative Committee (IC) of the Republic of Armenia visited the Amulsar Gold Mine on June 13 in cars owned by Lydian Armenia, aims to question both the multilateral investigation of this case and its objectivity and fullness. This is stated in the explanations of the Investigative Committee of the Republic of Armenia.
According to the source, investigators and experts carrying out investigative measures, when entering the Amulsar field, always followed the relevant instructions after receiving a protective form of safety. As for arriving at the Mine on cars of Lydian Armenia, then, as noted in the Investigative Committee of the Republic of Armenia, the Mine can be reached by special vehicles, the purpose of which is again to ensure the safety of a group of experts, and such equipment was provided by the company upon request leading the investigation. From various persons, comments are voiced that the expert group should enter the mine without employees of Lydian Armenia. In this regard, the body conducting the case declares that it itself determines the circle of participants in the process, based on the principle of multilateralism, completeness and objectivity of the criminal case.
Yesterday, ArmInfo citing Lydian Armenia's statement reported ,on July 15, the Investigation Committee of Armenia informed the Lydian Armenia Company about the start of investigative measures with the participation of experts at the Amulsar Gold Mine. This is stated in the company's statement. According to the source, Lydian Armenia did not initiate this visit, during which two experts of the company accompanied the investigators of the Investigative Committee. However, a group of demonstrators who were blocking roads leading to the field during the year prevented the beginning of the work of investigators into Amulsar's territory, without obeying police demands. This, according to the statement, once again indicates the extent of the ongoing illegal actions around the Amulsar project. "A group of demonstrators, which, in our conviction, does not represent the views of the community, has been carrying out unpunished actions for more than a year, attempting to curtail the largest international investment program in Armenia. They tried to prevent the investigative measures initiated by the Investigative Committee of the Republic of Armenia, "the Lydian Armenia statement reads."
