Investigation Committee: Karen Petrosyan might be abducted from Armenia's territory

  • by Nana Martirosyan

The facts in the criminal case on death of Armenian citizen Karen Petrosyan, who was killed in Azerbaijani captivity, suggest that he might be abducted from the territory of Armenia, Sona Truzyan, Spokesperson of the Investigation Committee of Armenia, told ArmInfo.

"The circumstances of Petrosyan's capture and death are being verified. On the day of his abduction Petrosyan went to collect wood in the territory bordering Azerbaijan. That part of the border is mined and only a man very much familiar with the area could pass there. In addition, Petrosyan could not cross the border securely and unnoticed by Azeri snipers, who would open fire at him," she said. The above facts suggest that Petrosyan was noticed and abducted by the Azerbaijani forces.

According to Sona Truzyan, it is early making any exact conclusions on the fact of Petrosyan's murder. She said that video available on the web suggests that they applied violence against the civilian. "If Petrosyan was not murdered, the Azerbaijani party must not create any obstacles to repatriation of his body to Armenia," she said. 

The 31-year-old resident of Chinari village Karen Petrosyan, crossed the border while drunk and fell captive to the Azerbaijani forces. In a day, Azerbaijan reported that Petrosyan died of what they call a cardiovascular deficiency.  Meanwhile, Armenia insists that Petrosyan died from tortures, as the man did not suffer from any heart problems. The video and photo materials available in the Azerbaijani mass media testify to the inhumane treatment of Karen Petrosyan in Azeri captivity. At present Armenia is collecting the necessary materials to apply to international instances over inhumane treatment of captives in Azerbaijan. ICRC is negotiations for repatriation of Petrosyan's body.
