US Delegate: Massive Crackdown on Civil Society in Azerbaijan Is Alarming

In Warsaw, on September 21, 2015, during the  OSCE Human Dimension Implementation meeting the  head of the U.S.Delegation,  David J. Kramer, referred to human right violations in Azerbaijan.

In his speech he particularly noted:

"The massive crackdown on civil society in Azerbaijan is alarming. Human rights activists, journalists and defense lawyers have been interrogated and incarcerated, and the health of several of those imprisoned is rapidly deteriorating. The Azerbaijan government has retreated from cooperation with OSCE institutions through its closure of the OSCE’s Baku office and its insistence on limiting the number of ODIHR election observers."

It is to be remained that during the same meeting the EU has also released a statement on the human right violations in Azerbaijan.
