The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) office in Azerbaijan conducted 80 visits (in 19 detention centres) to prisoners in 2023, AzVision.az reports via the International Committee of the Red Cross.

There were 1,600 written and video messages sent and phone calls made between people of Armenian descent arrested in Azerbaijan and their families, as well as 40 between Azerbaijani individuals detained in Armenia and their families.

"More than 6,000 detainees received various items, including summer and winter clothing, underwear, shoes, hygiene kits, books, sports equipment, and more," the statement from the ICRC says.
