France's incumbent President Francoise Hollande is more dangerous than his predecessor Nicolas Sarkkozy as regards the criminalization of the denial of the Armenian Genocide," former President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), member of the Turkish ruling Justice and Development Party Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview with SalamNews.
"It was Hollande's Party that proposed to put the bill criminalizing the Armenian Genocide denial on the agenda. Although the bill was proposed by Sarkozy's party last year, most of its supporters were from Hollande's party. Hollande has promised to adopt the bill, and he is now trying to realize it," Cavusoglu said.
Turkish Zaman daily reported Francoise Hollande is going to put the bill criminalizing the denial of genocides on the agenda of the parliament.
