Orban is still blamed for Safarov’s extradition

YEREVAN, OCTOBER 2, ARMENPRESS: The passions over Ramil Safarov’s extradition in Hungary hasn’t calmed down. Authorities have become a target of criticism for the opposition. Member of the Parliament Laszlo Kovacs didn’t miss the opportunity to pose questions, make announcements and critical comments. As reports Armenpress, referring to Hungarian international Politics, both the foreign and the justice ministries had opposed the move, arguing that the murderer was celebrated as a national hero in his homeland and would be immediately released upon his repatriation.

Socialist MP Laszlo Kovacs also remarked that Hungary had “meddled” with the conflict of Azerbaijan and Armenia. In response, Orban said that the decision had not been motivated by the promise of any short-term benefits. Crossing the border on political correctness Orban added “We would have done the same if an Armenian had killed an Azerbaijani. Hungary should follow its own interests rather than those of Armenia or Azerbaijan”

The Hungarian authorities repatriated Azerbaijani national Safarov on August 31 on the understanding that he would continue to serve the life sentence he received in February 2004 for murdering an Armenian in Hungary.

Armenia suspended diplomatic relations with Hungary on August 31 when life-sentenced perpetrator Ramil Safarov was extradited and pardoned in Azerbaijani. Safarov hacked to death Armenian serviceman Gurgen Margaryan during NATO’s training in Budapest. Azerbaijan has deceived Hungary and broken its written promise to keep the murderer in prison after Safarov’s extradition to Azerbaijan.

Hungarian-Azerbaijani blameful bargain was condemned by international organizations, countries and political important figures.
