On August 8, 2011, Lori Region Court of General Jurisdiction continued hearing the trial of surgeon Norik Melikyan’s case against “#1 Vanadzor Hospital Complex” CJSC.
70-year-old Norik Melikyan submitted a lawsuit to Lori Region Court of General Jurisdiction with a claim that “#1 Vanadzor hospital complex named after L. Areshyan” CJSC should consider the supplementary contract N 193/6, signed for fixed period on 01. 06. 2010 void, instead of a labor contract signed for unlimited period.
The court trial, presided by Judge N. Avetisyan, was attended by plaintiff Norik Melikyan and representative of the plaintiff party, lawyer Arayik Zalyan from Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly-Vanadzor. Although the responding party and its representative had been properly notified about the time and the venue, they did not attend the trial. The Judge decided to hold the trial without the responding party.
During the trial, A. Zalyan made his claim clear: that is to consider the supplementary contract N 193/6, signed for fixed period on 01. 06. 2010 as a labor contract with unlimited period and abolish No 34 decree and notification approved by the chief of “#1 Vanadzor Hospital Complex” CJSC on 19.05.2011 as well as reinstate Norik Melikyan’s previous position and exact the wages for the whole period of enforced outage.
A. Zalyan also presented his objection in response to the letter submitted by the chief of “#1 Vanadzor Hospital Complex” CJSC named after L. Areshyan. The court concluded the trial of the case and left for the advisor’s room to reach a verdict. The verdict will be promulgated at 17:30 pm on August 22.
