Australian Citizen Len Wicks urges country’s PM to acknowledge Armenian Genocide –
Len Wicks, an Australian citizen working for the UN and the author of “Origins: Discovery,” addressed a letter to the new Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull with the request to acknowledge the Genocide of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks, committed in the Ottoman Empire.
In the letter, Wicks noted that he had already addressed the MPs concerning that issue. Moreover, the ex-PM also made a statement on recognizing the Armenian Genocide in 2013, but failed to have the courage to raise the issue during his tenure as Prime Minister.
Wicks took part in the Armenian Genocide Centenary events in Yerevan, and was ashamed “that Australia and New Zealand failed to send even a representative that day, but instead went to be with Turkey”
