NGOs demanded to hold public hearings concerning the above mentioned law and they're ready to take an active part in the public hearings, presenting proposals.

Silva Adamyan also touched upon the issue of Amulsar. She exhorted the acting minister not to allow the private companies discredit our experts and their works. She also touched upon the choice of international experts. Unfortunately, the Minister mentioned that until now these experts have not been elected. So Mrs. Adamyan added that the delay of the experts opinions creates a tense situation.
