The Dutch court found Ilham Ashkyn guilty for inciting hatred and  violence against Armenians

ArmInfo.The Turkish-Azerbaijani Cultural Union in Hague leader Ilham Ashkyn is found guilty for inciting hatred and violence against Armenians.

According to the Netherlands Court decision, Ashkyn is sentence to 4  week imprisonment with 2 years probationary period and also to  compulsory labor for 120 hours. 

To note, on March 4, 2017, in the Dutch city of Almelo, a trial was  held over the chairman of the Turkish- Azerbaijani cultural union in  Hague, Ilham Ashkyn. He was accused of inciting hatred and violence  against Armenians, as he stated during the Turkish rally that  "Karabakh will become the grave of Armenians".

During the meeting arguments of defense and accusation were  presented. The prosecutor detailed the progress of the investigation  on the submitted case and the grounds for the requirements of the  prosecutor's office. He demanded that the accused be punished with 80  hours of compulsory labor and two weeks of suspended prison with a  two-year probationary period. The demand of the Prosecutor's Office  also took into account the fact that Ashkyn did not show deep  understanding and therefore there is a danger of a recurrence of the  crime.

To note, Ashkyn was brought to trial on charges of inciting hatred  and violence against Armenians. On June 1, 2014, a Turkish rally was  organized against the establishment of the monument to the victims of  the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire, on the territory of the  Armenian Apostolic Church. In connection with the anti-Armenian  statements made during the rally in Almelo, the Armenian  organizations of Holland filed an appropriate complaint.
