Armenians Protest Against Taking Away their Lands in the Marneuli Region


Armenians Protest Against Taking Away their Lands in the Marneuli Region

19/10/05 “Media News” – The Union of Armenian-Georgian Citizens “Nor Serund” is afraid of ethnic tensions in the Marneuli region.

According to the head of the union Mariam Mikoyan, the Armenian inhabitants of the village Kudro have asked them for help. They said that the 38.5-hectares of land they have rented 12 years ago have been traded away to an unknown Georgian.

“30 Armenian families live in this village and these lands provide them with their only income. The auction for selling the lands was held behind closed doors and nobody was informed about it,”- said Mikoyan.

The official organs of the Marneuli Region have not commented on the fact yet. Union “Nor Serund” is going to write a petition to President Mikheil Saakashvili with the request to solve this problem. 

The members of the organization are afraid that if the issue is not regulated, it may lead to ethnic problems in the region.
