Yerevan/Mediamax/. The press service of the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs of Hungary refused to provide an oral comment to Mediamax
about the extradition of Ramil Safarov to Azerbaijan.

In a telephone conversation with Mediamax's correspondent, the employee
of Hungarian Foreign Ministry's press service asked to send them a
written request, saying that he is not allowed to make an oral comment.

Mediamax also tried to get in touch with the Ministry of Public
Administration and Justice of Hungary but the Ministry's spokesperson
didn't answer the call.

Mediamax has also sent written requests to above mentioned ministries
and is now waiting for their response.

Ramil Safarov, who was serving life-time imprisonment in Hungary for
the brutal murder of Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan, returned to
Azerbaijan and was pardoned by President Ilham Aliyev.
