• Pilots ready to go to European Court of Human Rights (video)

    A group of pilots, who have not received disability pensions for seven years, were again staging a protest outside the government building on Thursday, calling the executive’s attention to their problem.

    Seyran Sargsyan, who worked as a pilot for 40 years, says Minister of Justice Hovhannes Manukyan has assured them that the issue is under consideration.

    “No one obeys laws nowadays. Everyone is cheating today. We do not say that he [minister] is deceiving us; it is obvious that he is not such a man,” Mr Sargsyan told A1+.

    He says in 2006, the government deliberately led the Armenian Airlines to bankruptcy. Over 60 pilots warn the authorities that they are going to restore their rights at any cost. The group is even ready to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.
