STEPANAKERT (PanArmenian.net)—Representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) mission in Nagorno-Karabakh visited Azeri saboteurs who are currently standing trial in Stepanakert.
The Azeri citizens were given letters from their families, with return messages sent with ICRC.
According to Azeri news agency APA, the ICRC Azeri Office spokesperson refused to comment on the court hearings, noting that the Red Cross is not a source of information on the issue.
Shahbaz Guliyev and Dilgam Askerov are undergoing trial in Stepanakert. The two Azeri commandos were caught making an incursion into Armenian territory (Karvachar) in the summer. The third commando, Hasan Hasanov, was killed, and his body was handed over to Baku earlier in October. The actions of the commando group left an underage resident of Karvachar and an Armenian serviceman killed, as well as one woman wounded.
A video containing footage of Armenian POW Hakob Injighulyan’s interrogation and mistreatment in Baku was found in Askerov’s video camera. The saboteur was unable to explain how the footage was obtained.
As Defense Ministry spokesman Artsrun Hovhannisyan stated in a Facebook post earlier this week, “A video recording is available clearly showing the violence used against Injighulyan, which was a means of forcing him into making false statements. It also accurately identifies the Azerbaijani saboteurs, who allegedly ‘visited their relatives’ graves.’”
