PanARMENIAN.Net - RA Chief Officer of Justice denies dismantling GALA Gyumri TV channel broadcast equipment



Armenia's Chief Officer of Justice Gagik Ayvazian refuted hearsay that yesterday his employees dismantled the broadcast equipment of GALA Gyumri TV channel.



Commenting on the situation, Gagik Ayvazian said, "On receipt of an enforcement order from the Court of General Jurisdiction of Shirak region, officers of justice are empowered to dismantle the antenna. However, they confined themselves to a warning disconnection."



"GALA's antenna is still on the television tower of Gyumri and the TV channel will again be able to legally start broadcasting in case the legal procedure initiated against it is dropped.



Earlier this month, the Court of Appeal of Armenia upheld the decision of Gyumri Court of First Instance, which obliged GALA TV channel to clear its equipment from the old television tower, which belongs to Gyumri city administration, Mediamax reports.
