Canadian MP Harold Albrecht condemns the pardoning and glorification of Azeri axe-murderer Ramil Safarov. He made the following statement on the Parliament floor Wednesday.
“I rise today to express my utter contempt and complete disbelief of recent developments in the case of Azerbaijani military officer, Ramil Safarov.
On August 31, Safarov was transferred fromHungarytoAzerbaijanto ostensibly serve out a life prison sentence for the brutal murder of an Armenian military officer in 2004. Upon his return, he was pardoned and released.
These developments are of real concern to Canada, and in particular to Canadians of Armenian descent who want peace in their homeland.
Murder should be condemned, not rewarded.
Canadacontinues to support the ongoing peace process, and we will continue to promote regional cooperation and reconciliation. We encourage all parties to take the necessary measures to increase trust and constructively contribute to the peace process between Armenia and Azerbaijan.”
