On 16 October, a protest, initiated by the Karabakh Liberation Organization (KLO), the Society of Karabakh Invalids (SKI) and the Organization War Veterans (OWT), was held outside the French Embassy in Baku. Although the protest was stopped, it was possible to submit the resolution of the action to the French Embassy, Trend reports.
18 protestors were detained, but later released. Three participants are still in the Sabail District Police Department No. 39.
The protesters demanded the annulment of the law penalizing denial of the so-called Armenian genocide, for the French President and Parliament to apologize to the Azeri and Turkish citizens, to stop the activity of the French Embassy in Azerbaijan and to expel Armenia from the co-chairmanship in OSCE Minsk Group.
