Member of the Armenian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Edmon Marukyan staged a protest in front of the doors to PACE session hall, as the Assembly started its winter session on Monday in Strasbourg. Marukyan held a poster reading "Freedom to Armenian prisoners held in Azerbaijan."
The Armenian MP shared the video from the scene on his Facebook account, saying: "We started the PACE session through raising our voice with the international community to exert pressure on Azerbaijan and immediately free Armenian prisoners and civilians," Marukyan wrote.
To note, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) is holding its 2021 winter plenary session from January 25 to 28 in a hybrid manner, allowing members to participate remotely or attend in person in Strasbourg.
