Coordination Center of Armenian Associations of Sweden demand Azerbaijan to repatriate Karen Petrosyan's body

  • by Ashot Safaryan

  • Saturday, August 23, 20:29

Coordination Center of Armenian Associations of Sweden has disseminated an open letter addressed to the ICRC President Peter Maurer, wherein it claims that the death of the Armenian civilian Karen Petrosyan in Azeri captivity and the video where he is suffering violent treatment by Azeri militaries creates grounds for questioning the captive's natural death. 

The Coordination Center urges involvement of independent international experts in the inquiry into Petrosyan's death reasons. They called on the ICRC to take every possible measure to repatriate the body to Armenia.

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.
