MOSCOW — Russian millionaire German Sterligov intends to file a lawsuit against Azerbaijan at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), his lawyer Arthur Hayrapetov has revealed to Ren TV.

He said the case will be taken to Strasbourg in the near future. “German Sterligov will be against Azerbaijan at the European Court of Human Rights. In the near future he will appeal to ECtHR related to Azerbaijan’s behavior towards him. The matter is that German Sterligov was first named persona non grata and denied access to Baku. Then the Azeri authorities launched a criminal case against him thus depriving him of the right to protecting himself” Hayrapetov said.

The lawyer is confident Sterligov will win. He added that the sum of the compensation would be revealed later.

According to earlier reports, Interpol removed German Sterligov’s name from its wanted list. The Russian businessman was accused by Azerbaijan of launching illegal activity in Nagorno Karabakh.
