The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has condemned
the Azerbaijani president’s decision to pardon officer Ramil Safarov.

The UN Office stresses that serious ethnic crimes should be condemned
and those who commit them should be punished.

Senior Lieutenant Safarov killed an Armenian officer during NATO
training in Hungary. The Budapest court sentenced him to life
imprisonment without the right to be pardoned for 30 years.

On the 31st of August, the Hungarian authorities extradited him to
Baku where he was immediately pardoned by the Azerbaijani President.

This caused harsh protests in Armenia and Western countries.
