STEPANAKERT (Noyan Tapan)–The Nagorno Karabakh Republic Prosecutor General’s Office issued a statement Monday–in connection with Samvel Babayan’s hunger-strike.
The Nagorno Karabakh Republic Prosecutor’s Office considers the hunger-strike a demand that the case be brought to a Yerevan court–so that forensic experts can examine whether violence had actually been used against him.
The Prosecutor General’s Office denies the allegations of violence against Babayan referring to the results of recent forensic-medical examinations. The examination took place during the preliminary investigation with the participation of experts from Stepanakert and Yerevan.
The statement mentions that Babayan–since the moment of his detention–has been kept in the isolation ward of the State Department on National Security where all the rights stipulated by the law are guaranteed.
