[Presenter] Azerbaijani Speaker Murtuz Alasgarov has issued a specific
instruction to take Armenian President Robert Kocharyan to the
international tribunal as he confessed to criminal activities from the
rostrum of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

[Alasgarov] I think that Kocharyan is a criminal. He himself admitted
that he had participated in the Karabakh war and was proud of it. As a
criminal, he should be taken to an international tribunal. I am also
in favour of this. I am asking lawyers from both the opposition and
the authorities to learn the procedure and prepare a draft
decision. We will appeal to relevant organizations to make sure that
international courts deal with this issue.
