Azerbaijan says no problem with implementation of ECHR decisions

Baku: Azerbaijan fully executes the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and there is no problem in this regard, Chingiz Asgarov, the permanent representative of Azerbaijan to the ECHR and head of the Human Rights Protection Unit in the Department of Work with Law Enforcement Agencies in the Presidential Administration, told reporters on Oct.27.

Commenting on the allegations that Azerbaijan fails to implement the decisions, the representative mentioned that it is a purely political position. “They exert political pressure. This is a position far from law,” he added.

Asgarov also said that Azerbaijan has complaints regarding the ECHR’s considering the appeals. “We have remarks on the priorities that the ECHR gives to specific applications. We have said that our position is right,” he noted.
