German representative to the Council of Europe, Frank Schwabe, challenged on substantive grounds the credentials of the delegation of Azerbaijan.

“There is not only a dramatic escalation in domestic politics with more and more political prisoners, […] there is a direct responsibility of Azerbaijani delegation for the fact that our rapporteurs were unable to visit political prisoners at least 3 times during 2023.

The negative highlight is a non invitation of the Council of Europe to observe early elections for President of 2024.

This is a clear and unforgivable break within all the rules of cooperation and an attempt to undermine the Council of Europe”.
