The international community, including the Islamic world, must stop Armenia’s state-level terror against Azerbaijan, a famous Lebanese lawyer, expert in foreign policy and international law, Tarek Chindeb told Trend.
Chindeb noted that the settlement of Azerbaijani lands occupied by Armenians from Lebanon and Syria to change the demographic situation in the region is a crime against humanity, a grave violation of international law.
This is one of four crimes that fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court, the functioning of which is governed by the provisions of the Rome Statute, Chindeb said.
The lawyer said Armenia’s recruiting of mercenaries for committing crimes against the indigenous population of the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan in exchange for the promise of citizenship and financial benefits is also an international criminal offense.
To achieve a concrete result, Azerbaijan would have to raise the issue not only within the country itself but also internationally to prosecute these criminals, Chindeb noted.
The Lebanese judicial system is also obliged to take measures and bring to justice those of its citizens who participate in illegal armed groups in occupied Karabakh, he said.
The Lebanese expert also stressed that it is necessary to pay close attention to all the facts of participation of Armenians in formations of illegal bandits.
‘Several days ago, there were several media reports confirming that extremist Armenian Christian groups, under the auspices of the French government, have created support groups for “militias” who had been involved in committing crimes against the Syrian people since 2013. , said the lawyer.
‘France must investigate this and bring the criminals to justice. It should be remembered that while these actions are an international crime, they are also punishable by the laws of France itself, Chindeb added.
