Insulting Remarks about Armenia Forces Resignation in Sweden


STOCKHOLM (AP) — The deputy chairman of a Swedish-Turkish association has resigned after derogatory comments he made about Armenians last week.

Barbaros Leylani, who called for death “to Armenian dogs” at a Stockholm rally, apologized Monday, April 11, on the association’s website saying he had been misunderstood.

Swedish legal watchdog Juridikfronten said it had reported the speech for incitement to racial hatred to police and an Armenian association says it also plans to make a police report.
