Gurgen Margaryan’s legal successors apply to the European Court of Human Rights
Representatives of legal successors of slain Armenian Officer Gurgen
Margaryan and another Officer of RA Armed Forces Hayk Mukuchyan have
filed a complaint against Azerbaijan and Hungary to the European Court
of Human Rights, the Armenian Ministry of Justice reports.
The Armenian side demands to recognize that the transfer of murderer
Ramil Safarov and his subsequent pardon and glorification in
Azerbaijan violates the rights incorporated in Article 2 (right to
life) and Article 14 (prohibition of discrimination) of the European
Convention on Human Rights.
Another application will be submitted to the UN Committee on the
Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The application will present
Azerbaijan’s discriminatory anti-Armenian policy and the propaganda of
hatred towards Armenians in Azerbaijan.
