Defamation against Azerbaijan in the International Court of Justice

Politics 18:12 19.04.2024

On April 19, the International Court of Justice in The Hague concluded hearings for the "Armenia vs. Azerbaijan" case, with Shawn Murphy, an international human rights advocate representing Armenia, delivering a statement regarding Azerbaijan's alleged "ethnic cleansing" policy in Karabakh.

Murphy accused Azerbaijan of perpetrating violence against Armenians in Karabakh during the conflict, labeling the state as racist toward Armenians worldwide. He asserted that the Azerbaijani army targeted ethnic Armenians, leading to their displacement and oppression. Murphy contended that anti-Armenian sentiments in Azerbaijan contribute to hostility toward the Armenian people, forcing many to flee their homes under dire circumstances.

During the Second Karabakh War, it liberated its territories on the battlefield without resorting to military violence against Armenia. Azerbaijani authorities maintained that the migration of Armenians from Khankandi was facilitated peacefully, with no harm inflicted on any individuals. They reiterated that Armenians were guaranteed their constitutional rights and chose to leave voluntarily, as many did not have ancestral ties to the region. Additionally, Azerbaijan highlighted its culture of peace and tolerance, refuting claims of ingrained hatred toward Armenians among its youth.

The Hague court is set to announce its final decision on April 22, marking the conclusion of this contentious legal battle.
