The situation on Amulsar again escalated: the deputy demands an  objective investigation from the police
ArmInfo. On the night of September 7, employees of the new security organization Lydian Armenia attacked the defenders of Amulsar and beat them. Ani Samsonyan, a member of the Enlightened Armenia parliamentary faction,  wrote about this on her Facebook page. "According to eyewitness accounts, violence was also used against the  policeman. The Armenian police must objectively investigate all  circumstances, and the perpetrators must be brought to justice, "the  MP said. Samsonyan also informed that the day before she visited  Amulsar with her colleague Gevork Gorgisyan and had a conversation  with his defenders. At the same time, according to her, there were  5-6 Lydian Armenia guards on the two policemen on duty. "Private  security guards filmed us throughout our stay, and they had neither  the right nor the permission to do this," she said. Lydian Armenia, meanwhile, voiced the opposite point of view  regarding the incident, stating that the attack was carried out on  its security organization by a group of people who broke into the  territory of Amulsar. It should be reminded that earlier Lydian Armenia's previous security  organization, the Special Security Service LLC, was at the center of  the scandal, which provoked collisions on Amulsar after dismantling  the carriages of the activists' houses. It is noteworthy that during  the clashes a number of guards were detained on suspicion of  hooliganism. On September 1, Lydian Armenia announced that it had  changed the security organization due to the expiration of the  contract with the "Special Security Service", but in reality, by the  decision of August 28, on the basis of the conclusion of the  Licensing Commission operating in the RA Police, its license was  suspended due to with identified violations. The total cost of the Amulsar project is $ 370 million. The life of  the deposit is 10 years and 4 months, with an average annual  production of 200 thousand ounces of gold planned. We add that Lydian  Armenia is a subsidiary of the British offshore Lydian International.  Environmentalists and ordinary citizens are concerned that the  operation of the mine may lead to the pollution of the mineral  underground waters of Jermuk and Lake Sevan. In addition to the water  basin, the public is also concerned about the possible presence of  uranium manifestations at the deposit. Environmentalists and activists demand that the positive conclusion  on the EIA project be invalidated, since it was adopted with  legislative violations, and the document itself contains problems and  shortcomings. Earlier, the European Bank for Reconstruction and  Development (EBRD) announced the completion of its participation in  the project for the development of the Amulsar deposit
