Please note this article and following information:
The article has – see below – presented inthe website : Russian-language, LINK: http://minval.az/news/123725749 particulary a not correct interpretation.
The translation of the russian version means in english version:
The “Ombudsman” of Armenian separatists was thrown out of the European Ombudsman Institute
The Commissioner for Human Rights (Ombudsman) of Azerbaijan, Elmira Suleymanova, participated in the General Assembly of the European Ombudsman Institute, which took place in Bucharest.
As reported to “Trend” by the Ombudsman institution on Thursday, in her speech Suleymanova highlighted the important role of ombudsmen and national human rights institutions in the fulfilment of “Sustainable Development Goals” adopted by UN in 2015, and gave detailed information to the participants of the event about Azerbaijan’s experience in that respect.
In addition, Azerbaijani Ombudsman’s substantiated and persistent statements prevented a speech by an institutional member of the European Ombudsman Institute, a citizen of Armenia, Ruben Melikyan, acting as the Ombudsman of an illegal regime created in occupied Azerbaijani territories. The Commissioner for Human Rights of Azerbaijan also protested against Melikyan’s former speeches in support of the separatist regime established in the occupied territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. As a result of those protests, the “ombudsman” of theillegal regime established in the occupied Azerbaijani territories was deprived of membership in the European Ombudsman Institute.
I entreate the author of this text to correct it:
The EOI is an inpendant international organization to protect Human Rights. The members are institutional or individual or correspondent members on the basics of our Bylaws.
The Ombudsman-institution of the Republic of Azerbajan is an INSTITIONAL MEMBER, represented by the honest Ombudsman Ms Prof. Dr. Elmira Suleymanova.
The Ombudsman-institution of the Republic of Armenia is an INSITITIONAL MEMBER, represented by the Ombudsman Mr Dr. Arman Tatoyan.
The Ombudsman-institution of the Area of Nagorno Karabak is in the EOI an INDIVIDUAL member, because Nagorno Karabak is the EOI registered as individual member, and also as a non recognized area on the basic of the international law, represented by the Human Rights Defender Dr. Ruben Melikyan.
The EOI has not thrwoned or kicked out the meanwhile more then 14 years to the EOI appertaining individual member of Nagorno Karabak, because the EOI makes NO political issues and dont’t allow political exertion of political influences.
The Representative of Nagorno Karabakh, Mr. Melikyan has at the General Assembly 2017 not made a or any political statement or question, he made only an objective generally inquiry to children rights, without each political context to the presidium and got from them an answer without each political positions.
So – Dear Web-USERS – please note, that this article is not correct and I please you to do this in your own interest. Please note also, that the EOI is only interested in Human Rights and Protection of them and not in political issues. We please to accept this.
Please note: After the misunderstanding Article – see below – in the social Media presented will be implemented in a correct way form the author, than we take out our statement, because we are interested only in a good cooperation and relationship and we don’t allow any political tortios interference.
Dr. Josef Siegele, Secretary General.
