The judgment by the European Court of Human Rights ans the statement by seven judges that the Armenian Genocide is a clearly established historical fact is a victory for Armenia, attorney Amal Clooney said in an interview with Armenia’s Public Television.
The attorney expressed hope that Turkey would play close attention to this judgment and would embrace high standards for freedom of expression.
“It was a true honor to represent Armenia in this case. Looking back I am sure Armenians do not really care much about what Mr. Perincek said. We can say Armenians care what the Pope said and we know that the Pope has come to say that it was a genocide. President Obama before becoming a president said it was a genocide. Turkey’s continues denial is regrettable. I am pleased I have been playing a part in correcting the record at least in the perspective of the courts today,” she added.
