The article says that on 21 November 2012, under the order of the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Military Prosecutor`s Office set up a special investigation group due to the facts of killing, torturing and disabling of Azerbaijani captives and hostages by the Armenian armed forces in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan, as well as in Armenia, sabotages and terrorist attacks committed by Armenians, deportation of the population, destruction of material resources in the residential areas, destruction of cultural-historic monuments and other grave crimes committed by Armenians since 1988.
Under article #103 and other articles of Azerbaijan’s Criminal Code which envisage responsibility for genocide, courts issued arrests warrants against 296 people for the Khojaly, Garadaghly, Meshaly, and Baghanis-Ayrem tragedies as well as torture against captives and other crimes committed by Armenian armed forces.
Note that, professional serviceman Bagdasaryan Arsen Edwardovich, who is a member of an Armenian reconnaissance-sabotage group, was captured by Azerbaijani soldiers while attempting to cross the Aghdam part of the contact line of troops on 26 December 2014 and handed over to law enforcement agencies.
The Military Prosecutor’s Office launched a criminal case on the fact. Bagdasaryan is charged under the Criminal Code’s articles # 218.2 (participation in criminal community), 29,120.2.1 (attempt to a deliberate murder by group of persons, on preliminary arrangement by group of persons, by organized group or criminal community), 29,120.2.7 (attempt to a deliberate murder of two or more persons), 29,120.2.12 (attempt to a deliberate murder on motive of national, racial, religious hatred or enmity), 29,282.2 (attempt to commitment of explosion, arson or other actions directed on destruction or damage of enterprises, constructions, means of communication, means of message and communication, objects of life-support of a population with a view of undermining defensibility and economic safety of the Azerbaijan Republic).
The criminal case was investigated and sent to the court for consideration.
The court proved the crimes committed by Baghdasaryan and he was fairly sentenced. The Republican Military Prosecutor’s Office continues investigation into the case of other members of the criminal group.
