PanARMENIAN.Net - The World Court in The Hague has promised to make a decision as soon as possible on a case case Armenia filed that said Azerbaijan promotes ethnic hatred against Armenians and asked the court to stop the cycle of violence and hatred.
The judge said the decision will be adopted as soon as possible, adding that the sides will be provided information about the date a little later, Sputnik Armenia reports.
The hearing dealt with Armenia’s request for emergency measures to stop the violations, while the court considers the claim. The Armenian lawyers said Azerbaijan’s authorities are fostering ethic hatred and a culture where murder and torture of ethnic Armenians were “systematic”.
“Generations upon generations are indoctrinated into this culture of fear and hate of anything and everything Armenian,” Yeghishe Kirakosyan said.
Dozens of videos of Azeri troops cutting the throats and ears of Armenians have been spreading online since the final days of the war in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Azerbaijanis subject the Armenian POWs and captives to physical abuse and humiliation. The videos depict Azerbaijani captors variously slapping, kicking, and prodding Armenian POWs, and compelling them, under obvious duress and with the apparent intent to humiliate, to kiss the Azerbaijani flag. In most of the videos, the captors’ faces are visible, suggesting that they did not fear being held accountable.
