Demand “Leahy Law” Investigation of Aliyev's War Crimes
Cut off U.S. Military Aid to Azerbaijani Forces Committing Abuses Against Armenians

Call on President Obama and your Members of Congress to demand the investigation of Azerbaijan's violations of the "Leahy Law" -- a measure which cuts military aid to foreign armed forces that are credibly reported to have committed "gross violations of internationally recognized human rights."

Background: Credible reports of atrocities committed by Aliyev's forces against civilians and Karabakh defense forces during the April 2 - 7 Azerbaijani attack on Nagorno Karabakh republic are now emerging - including the execution and mutilation of an elderly couple in the village of Talish and the beheading of three Armenian soldiers.  

President Aliyev's military annually receives millions dollars in Foreign Military Financing (FMF) and International Military Education and Training (IMET) appropriations, and, as such, is subject to Congressional oversight to ensure compliance with U.S. law.  The "Leahy Law", first introduced in 1997, prohibits the U.S. Department of State and Department of Defense from providing military assistance to foreign military units that violate human rights with impunity.

In keeping with core American values, these laws help ensure that our U.S. tax dollars are not used by units or individuals of foreign armed units or security forces to commit human rights abuses and war crimes.
