France, Strasbourg, Oct. 6 / Trend, Trend A. Maharramli /

If international organizations, in particular, PACE, would show a tough stance against the policy of ethnic cleansing against Azerbaijanis, conducted by Armenia, it is possible that such events would not recur. According to Trend, chair of the Azerbaijani delegation Ganira Pashayeva said about this in speech during the debate on the "The activities of democratic institutions in Armenia" report , presented by the co-rapporteurs to the country John Prescott and Axel E. Fischer in the third working day of the autumn plenary session of PACE.

"During the March events in Armenia in 2008, 10 people died. No police officer has been held responsible in this regard. What are we talking? Do not know whose order was the reason for their murder. It is difficult to ascertain the identity of who gave the orders? Who do you think could give similar instructions to law enforcement authorities? No official has been sacked after the death of these people at least for non-judicial duties. Most of you know the answers to these questions, but you were content with the release of illegally detained people in three years. On the international organizations is a considerable responsibility for what is happening in Armenia. If a few years ago, when 250 thousand Azerbaijanis, who were citizens of that country, subjected to ethnic cleansing, expulsion and murder, international organizations, PACE, would take a tough stance, it would be possible that similar events do not recur . Weapons that the Armenian government used against Azerbaijanis, are now directed against their own people. The result of PACE's loyalty is that the head of the state allows itself to make statements that contradict all the principles and decisions of the organization," - she added.

Member of the delegation Aydin Abbasov noted in his speech that when the state of democracy in Armenia discussed, we should think again about the priorities of the organization.

"In discussing the state of democracy in Armenia, we should think again about the priorities of PACE. The events of 2008 have become the main theme of the report. Co-rapporteurs noted that the amnesty was a compromise between the government and civil society. However, this is not an indicator of stability and calm in Armenia. No tolerance, ethnic cleaning, violation of basic social rights makes people leave the country. Armenia, presenting themselves as a democratic legal state, is not complying with its international obligations ", - said Abbasov.

In addition, other members of the delegation - Ramiz Rzayev, Rafael Huseynov, Fazail Ibrahimli and Sevinc Fataliyeva in their speeches mentioned the continuation of Armenia's occupation policy and her failure to comply with decisions of international organizations.

PACE demanded from the Armenian government to publish results of the investigation of March events of 2008 to the end of 2011. These thoughts were expressed in the report "The activities of democratic institutions in Armenia", presented at the autumn plenary session of the PACE by co-rapporteurs on Armenia John Prescott and Axel E. Fischer.

The report says that the last amnesty helped investigate the death of 10 people during the March events of 2008 and establish a dialogue between government and opposition. But despite this lack of findings is a sense of concern.

"The Assembly considers that to prevent the recurrence of events in the future odobnyh investigation should be directed to the responsible vyyaalenie and bring them to justice. If it is impossible, the reasons should be explained in detail. The investigation should be transparent, and if the perpetrators are brought to justice for the death 10 people is not possible, then the results of investigations should be made public "- the report says.
