OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Article of the Law of Azerbaijan on Presidential Elections 178 §1 sets the date — the third Wednesday of October, which would mean that the elections were held on October 17, 2018 — that is, today. However, the vote was unexpectedly postponed by a presidential decree of February 5, 2018 to another date, April 11.

The Constitutional Court of Azerbaijan, to which I appealed with the demand to hold the Presidential election on the date established by law, remained unanswered. The statement addressed to the Prosecutor General of Azerbaijan with the undeniable facts of criminal offenses committed during the presidential elections of 2013, which resulted in the illegal reform of the Constitution, was also not considered. The international observers, human rights organizations and the FBI were acquainted with all legal materials.

Since today, October 17, 2018, presidential elections are not held in Azerbaijan, this creates legal grounds for appealing to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court demanding the start of a full-scale investigation and bringing to justice the criminals and their accomplices, who have recognized illegal seizure of power in Azerbaijan by a group of persons by prior conspiracy. Despite the fact that Azerbaijan does not recognize the jurisdiction of the ICC, the criminal activity of the mafia group has long assumed an international character, therefore the appeal to the ICC from a legal point of view is justified. In addition, if the judicial and legal system is not working, there are all legal grounds for demanding that Azerbaijan be recognized as failed state, with the return of the articles of the Constitution of the Republic of Azerbaijan to its original form and lustration in state bodies.

After the “elections” on April 11, I made an official statement on the establishment of the Azerbaijani government in exile, which was forwarded to international observers, public organizations, media, representatives of the Foreign Ministry of Russia, Israel and other countries, US President Donald Trump.

All international treaties signed by «President of Azerbaijan» Ilham Aliyev from April 11, 2018 to the date of new fair and legal elections will be disavowed!

Israeli State Comptroller Yosef Shapira received materials about unprecedented corruption schemes involving officials from Azerbaijan, which in recent years have been involving Israeli leading politicians and security forces in return for supporting the regime of Ilham Aliyev, whom the French court officially recognized as a dictator in 2017. According to one of the allegations related to corruption in the Israeli Ministry of Defense, the State Attorney’s Office has already begun a lawsuit.

People from Azerbaijan have always been distinguished by solidarity and mutual assistance. Many honest, talented, wise Azerbaijanis had to leave their homeland due to intolerable conditions and direct persecution of themselves and their families. I invite to cooperation all persons interested in the liberation of my native Azerbaijan from the captivity of the mafia group led by Ilham Aliyev.

Remember, no one is above the Law!

With love,

Candidate for President of Azerbaijan (2013, 2018)

The seizure of power takes place in Azerbaijan

123

On April 11, 2018, the so-called «presidential elections» are held in the Republic of Azerbaijan.

In fact, on April 11 the Azerbaijani authorities committed  criminal actions aimed at forcible seizure of power in violation of the Constitution, with direct or indirect complicity of a large number of international observers and the world’s leading media.

The presidential candidate of Azerbaijan, Milana Gorenstein (Ustinova), appealed to the Prosecutor General of Azerbaijan Zakir Garalov in relation to the criminal offenses committed by the leaders of the CEC of Azerbaijan during the period from 2013 to 2018. A lawsuit was filed with the Constitutional Court of the Azerbaijan Republic demanding holding scheduled elections, withdrawing the candidature of Ilham Aliyev and bringing him to justice.

The CEC of Azerbaijan did not register the candidacy of Ms. Gorenstein, and  there was no official refusal or explanation of the reasons. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan, to which the application was sent to visit Nagorno-Karabakh for professional activities, did not respond to the official request of Ms. Gorenstein. The General Prosecutor’s Office and the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Azerbaijan also showed inaction regarding the applications  and enabled the crime of seizure of power in Azerbaijan.

The leading international observers and the media, as well as local and international organizations conducting exit polls («Opinion Way» — France, «Arthur Finkelstein Association» — USA, Independent Research Center «Els» — Azerbaijan) were informed in writing and verbally  of the impending crime. Some observers (missions of the CIS Executive Committee and OSCE / ODIHR) received full access to documents sent to the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Constitutional Court of Azerbaijan. The legal situation prevailing in Azerbaijan was also discussed with the leaders of the Venice Commission. The materials  of the case are provided to the Secretariat of human rights organization “Amnesty International”.

Milana Gorenstein (Ustinova) is running in the presidential elections in Azerbaijan for the second time. After the elections in 2013, due to the refusal of all judicial instances of Azerbaijan, including the Supreme Court, lawsuits against the crimes committed by the leadership of the CEC were brought to the ECHR (France). The ECHR judge Julia Laffranque refused to consider the case of falsification of elections in Azerbaijan without any explanation. The PACE President Anne Brasseur received a complaint about the problems in ECHR and a full copy of the case materials, but she also decided to remain silent. Europol experts, who monitor transnational crimes, recommended starting an investigation into the above facts.

In 2018, Ilham Aliyev, expecting the recurrence of the 2013 scenario and new lawsuits in the ECHR regarding elections falsification, decided to strengthen his positions by expanding the powers of the judge from Azerbaijan to the ECHR Latif Huseynov. However, the authorities’ crimes went beyond the scope of the ECHR: in 2017 the French court officially recognized Ilham Aliyev as dictator.

When laws cease to work in the state, the state itself ceases to exist in the declared legal format. Ilham Aliyev led the Republic of Azerbaijan to the condition of failed state.

Milana Gorenstein (Ustinova) after consultation with the Secretariat prepared a statement of claim to the Prosecutor’s Office of the International Criminal Court in Hague. Despite the fact that Azerbaijan has not ratified the Rome Statute, there are mechanisms in international law to hold accountable the main executors and all accomplices for multiple crimes (seizure of power, juridical genocide,  extreme international corruption, transnational crimes, state terror, political prisoners, violations of international humanitarian law, etc.)

According to official sources, 894 international and 58,175 local observers were involved in the process of illegal seizure of power in Azerbaijan, as well as 150 journalists representing the world’s leading media: “The Washington Times”, “The Hill”, “The Jerusalem Post”, , «The Times of Israel», «Daily Caller», «Muslim World Today», «The Algemeiner», «Independent Journal Review», «RAİ» TV, «New Europe», «Al Jazeera», ORT, RTR, “Russia Today”, “The Daily Times”, TRT World, and others.

International observers faced problems in the 2018 elections in Azerbaijan

111

International observers are informed of the legal problems that arose in connection with the early presidential elections in Azerbaijan.

Milana Gorenstein informed the heads and members of the observer missions, as well as the heads of international organizations (the headquarters of the CIS observer mission, PACE, OSCE / ODIHR, Venice Commission, etc.), invited to the April 11 elections, that they were not informed about the legal immorality taking  place  in the republic  and involved  in the international crime  to seize power in Azerbaijan.

In particular, on February 8, 2018, Ms. Gorenshtein  appealed to the Prosecutor General of Azerbaijan Zakir Garalov with a request to conduct a prosecutor’s check, fire from the positions  and bring to justice  the workers of the Central Election Commission: the Chairman of the CEC of Azerbaijan Mazahir Panahov, the head of the legal department of the CEC of Azerbaijan Irada Hajiyev and the head of  press service of the CEC Azer Saryev.

On March 8, 2018, Milana Gorenstein applied to the CEC  for participation in the presidential election-2018.

On March 12, 2018, Milana Gorenstein filed a lawsuit  with the Constitutional  Court of the Republic of Azerbaijan  with a demand to remove Ilham  Aliyev  from participation  in the presidential elections of  2018 and bring him to justice (Article 80 of the Constitution of the Republic of Azerbaijan).  Attached to the lawsuit were copies of materials  sent earlier to the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan and materials of international criminal investigations.

None of the letters  to the date of this news report (March 25, 2018) was considered, the candidacy of Milana  Gorenshtein  as a candidate for the President of the AR was not approved, nor were the reasons for the refusal announced.  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan has  also been silent  in relation to request from Ms. Gorenshtein for permission to visit Nagorno-Karabakh in connection with her professional  activities as a lawyer and journalist.

Ignoring and concealing  facts in the presidential elections are new crimes of state bodies of the Republic of Azerbaijan,  in which international observers  were involved.

At present, observers have been invited lawyers to study the facts and accompanying documents set out in the application.

Milana  Gorenstein, without being  distracted  by falsifications  and  legal  cataclysms  in Azerbaijan, will present her renewed political program in the coming days and begin to actively form the work team of the Party of Love.
