Statement by Amal Clooney in European Court of Human Rights
Updated: Jul 27
“Armenia…is not here to argue against freedom of expression any more than Turkey is here to defend it. This Court knows very well how disgraceful Turkey’s record on free expression is. You’ve found against the Turkish Government on 224 separate cases on freedom of expression grounds. So although this case involves a Turkish citizen, Armenia has every interest in ensuring that its own citizens do not get caught in a net that criminalizes speech too broadly, and the family of Mr. Hrant Dink know that all too well.” – Amal Clooney, January 28, 2015; European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg, France.
