Hungary’s Armenians to File Claim Over Azeri Killer, Blikk Says

Sept. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Hungary’s National Armenian Council will file a claim in court against the government’s decision to allow the transfer a convicted Azeri murderer of an Armenian soldier to Baku, where he was immediately pardoned, Blikk said.

The charges include bribery and abuse of power, the Budapest-based newspaper said, citing Szevan Sarkisian, chairman of the council.

Ramil Safarov, an army officer sentenced to life imprisonment by a Hungarian court for the 2004 murder with an ax of an Armenian serviceman in Budapest, was pardoned Aug. 31 by Azeri President Ilham Aliyev after being transferred to his home country to serve out his sentence there, Blikk said.
