Baku-APA. Former UK prisons minister, MP Gerry Sutcliffe estimated ON Armenians aggressive position on Ramil Safarov’s extradition. According to the information the European Azerbaijan Society gave APA the transfer of Ramil Safarov to Azerbaijani custody and subsequent pardon has caused a firestorm amongst the Armenian government, the Armenian Diaspora and its supporters: “As a result threats have been made against Azerbaijani diplomats, diplomatic relations with Hungary has been severed, the Armenian President has upped the war rhetoric and Safarov himself has been targeted. It is noteworthy that the press and some members of various European parliaments have also been quick to judge. It should be pointed out however that the transfer of Safarov was carried out in accordance with the European Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons. Moreover, Armenia itself has helped release and pardoned a number of its citizens convicted of terrorist attacks over the last 20 years. The background to this case of course is that not a single Armenian, including the current Armenian President, has ever been prosecuted for the killing of thousands of Azerbaijani civilians during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. An ongoing 20 year stalemate between the two sides continues to this day with Armenia steadfastly occupying almost 20% of Azerbaijani territory displacing around 900,000 of its citizens, despite four UN Security Council resolutions demanding the withdrawal of troops”.

The mp noted that the open sore on Europe’s border cannot be allowed to fester any longer: “Violence and the threat of violence only breed more violence. It is a time for cool heads and statesmanship on all sides. The international community must do its party to finally ending the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict”.

Members of UK House of Lords Ken Maginnis, Lord Laird and Lord Kilclooney also commented on the aggressive position and threats by Armenian authorities and terrorist organizations on the extradition of Ramil Safarov. They considered this extradition as legal and reminded that Armenia pardoned its terrorists. They also discussed occupation of Jabrayil region, where Ramil Safarov was born and called on Armenia to show restraint.
