Azerbaijan, Baku, 11 Dec / Trend corr. K.Zarbaliyeva/ The European Court is examining 1,000 complaints against Azerbaijan, part of which came from Azerbaijani citizens of Armenian origin, Azerbaijani judge at the European Court Khanlar Hajiyev told reporters in Baku on 11 Dec.
The European Court is considering
several complaints from the citizens displaced from the territory of
Nagorno-Karabakh, with two of them from Armenians against Azerbaijan. There are six complaints against Armenia from the people displaced from Lachin
region, he said.
It will take a long time to make a final decision on these cases, he said.
"Decisions which courts will take on these complaints will be pilot. Following the decisions, the number of such complaints to the European Court will increase. This issue also has political overtones. The European Court carefully takes the judicial decisions on the above complaints," said Hajiev.
Currently there are 40 complaints against Azerbaijan on the agenda of the European Court, which examination will commence next year, he said.
"Complaints against Azerbaijan are mainly related to property, non-enforcement of judicial decisions, violation of the right to a fair trial, the right to freedom of assembly and election rights," said Hajiev.
According to Hajiyev, the European Court will expedite examination of complaints on Azerbaijan, as the number of lawyers handling these cases has increased.
So far, the European court has made 16 decisions against Azerbaijan.
