Since August 20 the Armenian leadership has been aware of the decision
of the Hungarian authorities on Ramil Safarov's extradition.

Deputy Head of National Self-Government of the Armenian Minority of
Hungary, Alex Avanessyan, told Mediamax from Budapest.

"We received information through our sources that Hungary was going
to extradite Ramil Safarov to Azerbaijan. We hurriedly informed the
Armenian Embassy in Vienna and RA Ministry of Diaspora about it. We
did everything to prevent the return of the murderer to Azerbaijan,"
Alex Avanessyan said.

He also said the Armenian community in Hungary sent complaints to
the country's parliament and ministry of justice not to allow Ramil
Safarov's extradition.

"I think the Armenian Foreign Ministry had to have done something
here. We did what we had to do, but didn't feel support," Avanessyan
summed up.

To note, Press Secretary of Hungarian Foreign Ministry Gabor Kaleta
responded to the written inquiry of Mediamax on Ramil Safarov's
extradition saying: "the foreign ministry simply is not responsible
in this matter".
