COMPLAINT to the UN Special Rapporteur in the Field of Cultural Rights

Transparency International Anticorruption Center partnered with “Helsinki Assembly of Armenia - Vanadzor” NGO, “Protection of Rights without Borders” NGO, Law Development and Protection Center Foundation submitted a complaint to the UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights with regards to the loss of thousands of historical sites and artifacts  from Armenian  cultural heritage, as a result of capitulation. The attempts to erase the history and traces of Armenians from the region have been one of the key objectives of the ethnic cleansing policy adopted by Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is actively engaging in revisionist history and is using  three major methods to achieve this objective; namely destroying the heritage, vandalizing the heritage and/or appropriating the heritage to other people from the region.
