The PACE secretariat stated that the Azerbaijani human rights defender hindered Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan’s speech in January 2018 and thus violated the internal procedural rules. After this incident Armenian delegation to PACE raised question about the Azerbaijani human rights defender: “Today, during the speech of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan at the plenary session of PACE, they did not let me to enter the plenary session hall and said that the Armenian delegation to PACE complained about me. The Security Service took me to the PACE secretariat and I was officially warned. They said that if once again such a case will be repeated, my visit to any European institutions will be forbidden.
