Armenia’s Ministry of Nature Protection must allocate funds to the company that implemented a construction project in the Khosrov forest reserve to enable it to remove the building, according to the environmentalist Silva Adamyan.Minister of Nature Protection Aram Harutyunyan’s permission for the construction is business, she says.At her meeting with journalists on Thursday, Ms Adamyan addressed the minister, saying: “Excuse me Mr Harutyunyan, are you a businessman or minister of nature protection?”With respect to the current situation, Ms Adamyan said environmentalists keep on receiving reports on poaching.“We cannot understand what our law-enforcement agencies are doing to resolve the poaching problem,” Ms Adamyan said. She demands Minister Harutyunyan’s resignation as “to hold this post a person must at heart be an environmentalist rather than a businessman.”
