Azerbaijani family which sought political asylum in Armenia leaves


The five-member Azerbaijani family, which last year requested a political asylum in Armenia, has now left the country, the State Migration Agency’s chief told, without giving further details.

Asked where the family has gone and why, Gagik Yeganyan only replied that they are exercising their right to free movement. “A refugee – whether form Azerbaijan, Syria or elsewhere –  is not obliged to inform any authorized governmnet body of his or her departure,” he said.

The family, consisting of a father, mother and three kids, requested an asylum on the territory of Armenia from the customs checkpoint of Bagratashen (Armenia=Georgia border) on January 29, 2014.
