Ilgar Mammadov’s position on the last resolution of the European Parliament

09.07.2018

The position of the European Parliament on the non-ratification of the Agreement, planned to be signed between Azerbaijan and the European Union in the case the political prisoners, including me will not be released is not satisfying. Thus the European Parliament passed resolutions on my immediate and unconditional release in 2013 and 2014 years. Current resolution of the European Parliament means its retreat from the previous position. Because the most optimistic European Union official forecasts that the Agreement will be signed in the autumn of 2019 in the best case. And the ratification of the Agreement in any case will happen in 2020. This way the European Parliament allowed Ilham Aliyev to keep imprisoned until February of 2020, i.e. the end of my fake punishment period. The European Union surrendered, but I will not!
