The Hungarian government extradited (released) Ramil Safarov, the unrepentant Azerbaijani soldier who murdered Armenian lieutenant Gurgen Margaryan, in his sleep with an axe, during a 2004 NATO training exercise. Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev immediately pardoned and then freed Safarov upon his arrival in Baku.
Please take a moment to protest this travesty of justice by taking the following actions.
1) Call, Email or Post a Facebook message to the Hungarian Ambassador to the U.S., His Excellency György Szapáry, to share your thoughts in a principled, polite, but firm manner.
