On THE Support for the PROPOSAL To the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council OF EUROPE to Investigate
and Condemn INTERNATIONALLY
the Crimes of the Totalitarian Communist Regime
The ideology of National Socialism was condemned by the international community at the Nuremberg Trials. Although the crimes of the totalitarian Communist regime are no less grave, they have not yet been evaluated.
The Baltic Assembly supports the proposal of a group of the members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to adopt a resolution condemning on international level the totalitarian Communist regime (document no. 9875 of 25 September 2003) and to establish for this purpose a politically independent committee the task of which is to compile and evaluate information about human rights violations as well as crimes against humanity during the totalitarian Communist regime.
