Petition Asks Switzerland to Appeal Genocide Denial Verdict

The Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations of France

PARIS—In the struggle against Turkish denial of the Armenian Genocide, the Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations of France (CCAF) has launched a petition asking Switzerland to appeal the most recent judgment of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), which found that the ultra-nationalist Dogu Perinçek, president of the Workers’ Party of Turkey, could not be condemned for saying publicly in Geneva in 2007 that the “so-called Armenian genocide is an imperialist lie.”

    The petition contains the misspelling of the word Armenian in several paragraphs. The word Armenian is spelled as Arminian.
