Azerbaijani authorities have begun the forcible eviction of residents to demolish the last standing building in the neighborhood of the capital, Baku, where the 2012 Eurovision song contest is to be held. The government should order an investigation into the legality of the municipal authorities’ actions and compensate the evicted residents adequately, in line with national and international human rights law.
