Catalogue Listing Digital Evidence of Azerbaijan Violating UN Court Orders & Continued Human Rights Violations

Board Member & founding member of the Center for Truth and Justice Arsineh Arakel collected digital evidence with her CFTJ team and prepared the Catalogue of Open Source Digital Evidence of Violations by Azerbaijan of the Orders of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) documenting sources from 1/2022- 7/2024. This catalogue and archive came as a response to the widely unnoticed persistent dehumanizing Armenophobic and aggressive rhetoric and posts in violations of the binding provisional measures of the ICJ indicated on December 7, 2021 committed by the Azerbaijani government after the Second Nagorno-Karabakh War. These violations include summary executions in 2022, an imposed humanitarian crisis in 2022–2023, 2022 blockade, genocide in 2022, and eventual ethnic cleansing of the entire ethnically Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh in 9/2023. Even after the signing of a ceasefire agreement on November 9, 2020, and the indication of provisional measures by the ICJ the Azerbaijani government and Azerbaijani social media platforms continued to spread Armenophobia, aggressive rhetoric and territorial claims while continuing with their campaign of crimes against humanity, specifically against the unarmed and vulnerable Armenian civilians of Nagorno-Karabakh, which are also documented in the chart below. The purpose of this catalogue and archive of digital evidence is to preserve the memory of those who fell victim to these heinous acts and to synthesize available open-source evidence for use by those who seek justice on their behalf.

Disclaimer: Not all links in the catalogue remain currently active. Some links may have been removed or the account ceases to exist. This is particularly why CFTJ has adopted the Berkley Protocols in the preservation of digital evidence, mindful that collecting and preserving open source evidence is essential to documenting human rights violations, and war crimes.

The collection and preparation of this archive would not be possible without the persistent dedication of a select few interns, volunteers, and CFTJ members who, over time, have researched, documented, and compiled this evidence for the database to come to fruition. It has been a mass undertaking, with the database being comprised of over 1,500 individual sources. Each source may evidence a violation or a multitude of violations. Each of the 1,573 sources have a screenshot identifying the account posting, date, caption, corresponding posted images, videos, or documents that with the published source. A document identification number for each source also is utilized for each corresponding digital evidence archived in our database.
