Sentence to Ramil Safarov is cruel and we did not expect such sentence, the head of the state committee on work with diasporas , Nazim Ibrahimov told Trend.
He urged to refrain from rallies and violent protests, instead suggesting applying the legal and legitimate measures via international organizations and human rights courts in order to initiate the extradition of Safarov to Azerbaijan. The major initiative should come from local and diaspora organizations, he added.
The state committee is ready to help all diasporas and all other interested bodies in that matter, he told. However, the sentence was hugely influenced by the propaganda in the Azerbaijani society. Calling Ramil Safarov a hero has finally led to the modern outcome, Ibrahimov said.
