10 December marks Human Rights Day and this year it is devoted to the launch of a year-long campaign by the United Nations for the 50th anniversary of the two International Covenants on Human Rights: the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 16 December 1966.

 

The Baku Court of Appeal decided today to transfer human rights defender Dr Leyla Yunus to house arrest on medical grounds. This is a welcome and positive humanitarian gesture which follows a similar decision on 12 November with regard to Dr Yunus' husband, Mr Arif Yunus. The European Union hopes further steps will follow. We are ready to further deepen and broaden our relations with Azerbaijan.

La Cour d’appel de Bakou a décidé aujourd’hui de libérer de prison la militante des droits de l’homme Leyla Yunus et de l’assigner à résidence, pour raisons médicales. Cette décision constitue un geste humanitaire positif dont il y a lieu de se féliciter. Elle fait suite à une décision similaire, prise le 12 novembre en faveur du mari de Mme Yunus, M. Arif Yunus. L’Union européenne espère que d’autres mesures suivront. Nous sommes prêts à approfondir et à élargir encore nos relations avec l’Azerbaïdjan.
