1894) Genocide Charge Remains Unproven By Mrs Erkin Baker: Letter To Editor: Baltimore Sun

For the U.S. Congress to pass the bill condemning the alleged genocide of Armenians in Eastern Turkey during World War I and be sure that this action is not tainted by historical inaccuracy, Congress would need specific proof that such a genocide took place from a universally accepted court of justice or agency such as the International Court of Justice or the United Nations ("A debate not needed," editorial, Aug. 10).

These institutions stipulate guidelines for proof of a charge of genocide.

A charge of genocide must be thoroughly analyzed and scrutinized under the light of international law.

Archives, documents, recorded testimonies of witnesses, unfettered research by historians and hard evidence are required to make sure that claim can be established.

But no such process has been conducted by the key international institutions in this case.

Last April, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon declared that the United Nations has never recognized that genocide of the Armenians by the Ottoman Empire ever took place.

And certainly the International Court in the Hague has never approached this issue.

If this resolution is passed, Congress will be left with mud on its face, having once shown that this country is run by powerful ethnic (and other) lobbies.
