EuroParliament adopts tough resolution on Azerbaijan

 The European Parliament has adopted a tough resolution over Azerbaijan criticizing the country’s leadership for a crackdown on opposition protests in Azerbaijan and increased number of attacks on civil society, social network activists, and journalists in the country and urged its authorities to respect the conventions being ratified by the government.

The document condemns the arrests of up to 200 opposition protesters in March and April, the imprisonment of members of the opposition, and threats to close down nongovernmental organizations. It also calls for the immediate release of a number of prominent opposition figures and a newspaper editor still held in jail in defiance of a European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruling.
