Human Rights Commissioner of Moldova, Aurelia Grigoriu spoke in details about the attacks on her after a speech at the international conference 'Rule of law in the Council of Europe member countries and look at the borders in accordance with European standards', organized at the Constitutional Court of Armenia on July 4.
In her speech the Ombudsman accused the Armenian government in the occupation of Azerbaijani territories and the genocide of Azerbaijani people. She also declared Armenia the aggressor and underlined that this country does not adhere to international norms.
