Abstract. ― The case Perinçek v. Switzerland concerned the criminal conviction of a Turkish politician for publicly affirming the view, in Switzerland, that exterminations suffered by the Armenians had not amounted to genocide. On 15 October 2015, the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights delivered its judgement and concluded that it had not been necessary, in a context of a democratic society, to subject Mr Perinçek to a criminal conviction in order to protect the rights of the Armenian Community. Therefore, the Grand Chamber held, by a majority, that there had been a violation of Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The judgment leads to a differentiation in the approach to exterminations which is open to some criticism.
