  Armenia sends prisoners to Karabakh

The issue of sending prisoners from Armenia to Karabakh is being revised, Armenia's Minister of Justice Rustam Badasyan made the statement, reports citing the Armenian media.

"Despite the fact that penitentiaries are subordinated to the Ministry of Justice, prisoner's sentence must be changed in order to go to Karabakh," Badasyan noted.  

"Such issues are resolved by the Prosecutor General's Office through the trial. This question should be addressed to the Prosecutor General's Office, but such a process is underway, " he noted. 

Note that earlier we reported on the involvement of Armenian prisoners in the fighting in Karabakh. As of October 28, sentences of 12 prisoners were changed, and 4 more were released conditionally.
