Former Republican Party faction MP Levon Sargsyan’s Golden Palace casino employees are protesting, claiming their salaries are not being paid and they are being subject to trafficking. 168 Zham newspaper spoke to one of the employees who wished to be left anonymous.
“We are subject to trafficking. They’ve made us work since last September without any pay. Everywhere they explain to us about what trafficking is, they warn us about trafficking in foreign countries but we are subject to trafficking in our own country and no one is defending us. Today, we have filed an appeal about the criminal act; people have taken advantage of us and committed a crime,” said the casino worker.
168 Zham writes that the casino employees have applied to the Human Rights Defender’s office over a month ago, however, being neglected, they sent a letter to the President, Prime Minister, General Prosecutor, NSS head, Investigative Committee President, demanding a criminal case be initiated for the months long nonpayment of their salaries.
