Melkonian petition has yielded results.

The Cyprus government has issued a new preservation order for the Melkonian property, Cyprus Mail reports. This is good news towards the preservation and eventual reopening of Melkonian. The combined effort by the Melkonian alumni, the Armenian community of Cyprus and friends of Melkonian and Cyprus has yielded a definite result but the struggle is far from over. AGBU is a formidable and rich nemesis and they have better resources than the friends of Melkonian. Our creativity and drive for a good cause somewhat compensate for that but AGBU cannot be dismissed easily.

I'll keep y'all posted about further events. Alternatively, you may access up to date information at
