📃The RA Administrative Court Satisfied the Appeal Filed by the PRWB Lawyers

On December 09 of 2020, the RA Administrative Court (chaired by Judge S. Hovakimyan) adopted a decision to satisfy the appeal filed by Aregnazan Hahtesyan against the Regional Department of Kanaker-Zeytun Administrative District of the Social Security Service under the RA Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs by obliging to adopt a favourable administrative act appointing age pension since 02.07.2018.

Nina Hakobyan, the Lawyer of the Protection of Rights without Borders NGO represented the interests of A. Mahtesyan at the court.

On 02.07.2018 Aregnazan Mahtesyan filed an application to the RA Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs on the demand to appoint pension by attaching the workbook to the application.

By the letter received on 07.09.2018, the RA Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs rejected the application of A. Mahtesyan, stating that the working experience of the citizen is not sufficient for appointing working pension, regardless the information available in the work book, according to which the insurer database does not contain information on the enterprises mentioned by the latter, mentioning that the given time periods /1991-1995/ legally are not grounded to register a working experience. 

An appeal on the application of A. Mahtesyan in superior order was filed to RA Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, which was rejected.

On 05.07.2020, the Organization lawyer applied to the RA Administrative Court with the request to oblige Regional Department of Kanaker-Zeytun Administrative District of the Social Security Service under the RA Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs to appoint age pension for Aregnazan Mahtesyan since 02.07.2018 by including the data available in the work book of A. Mahtesyan, in regard to which the relevant information is missing from the RA National Archive, taking into consideration the presumption authenticity of the information available in the work book.

On 09 12 2020 the Court adopted a decision to satisfy the appeal, by which it was confirmed that the RA Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs implemented a wrong administration, which led to violation of such principals, as the abuse of formal requirements, abuse of the discretional authorities, administration disproportionality and obliged and appoint pension for A. Mahtesyan calculated since 08.07.2018 respectively.
