CoE's Unprecedented Judicial Review on Azerbaijan

The Head of Armenia’s delegation to the PACE Arpine Hovhannisyan informed that the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has initiated a unprecedented judicial review of Azerbaijan’s non-compliance with an ECHR ruling, Pan Armenian reports.

According to her, the Committee of Ministers has never ever made such a decision about any states before.

The move refers to the illegal conviction of prominent opposition politician Ilgar Mammadov.

"Both the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly have adopted a number of decisions since 2014, urging Azerbaijani authorities to release the politician, but even three years after the ECHR ruling, Mammadov still remains in jail," Hovhannisyan said.

"Nevertheless, Azerbaijani authorities chose to raise false accusations rather than implement the ECHR ruling," Hovhannisyan said.
