Lydian International United Kingdom Metals & steel, Mining Company Response


On 16 November 2018, Lydian Armenia filed a civil law complaint against Ani Khachatryan for spreading ‘slandering information’ after she posted information online concerning the Amuslar mine project. Lydian Armenia asked Ms. Ani Khachatryan to publicly retract her comments, pay one million Dram (approximately 1,870 Euros) in compensation for undermining its business reputation, and pay judicial costs. The company’s motion to secure the claim was granted on 3 December 2018. The measure chosen to secure the claim was prohibition of certain activities of the defendant. The court ordered Ms. Ani Khachatryan not to disseminate information negatively impacting Lydian Armenia’s reputation and ‘not reflecting the reality’. Ani Khachatryan appealed this ruling. The appeal was upheld by the court on 3 July 2019. A series of preliminary court hearings were held. The next preliminary hearing was scheduled for 15 July 2020.
