Legal Action Before the European Court for POWs Murdered by Azerbaijan


The Armenian Legal Center for Justice & Human Rights (ALC) in partnership with the International & Comparative Law Center (ICLaw) has announced the filing of new applications (cases) with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) alleging that Azerbaijan is responsible for the deaths of Armenian Prisoners of War (POWs) and civilians held in captivity.The applications present that 19 Armenian individuals, soldiers and civilians who remained in their native settlements, were killed in 10 separate incidents being held captive by Azerbaijani forces and/or in prison.These applications have been presented with irrefutable evidence in the form of eyewitness testimony, widespread video footage posted on the internet, forensic medical examinations and expert opinions.With insurmountable evidence, ICLaw, with the support of ALC, seeks to hold Azerbaijan accountable for failing to protect the lives of those in captivity.Check out the full report on the Public Radio of Armenia.
