Armenian national suffering from mental illness sentenced to 20 years in jail in Azerbaijan

Armenian citizen Karen Ghazaryan who accidentally crossed the border with Azerbaijan on July 15, 2018 was sentenced to 20 years of prison charged with attempting to carry out terrorist attacks in Azerbaijan. The relevant decision was ruled by Ganja Serious Crimes Court on Wednesday.

According to the court ruling, Ghazaryan is charged with several articles of the Criminal Code, as he was allegedly preparing to commit a terrorist attack using weapons and explosives.

34-year-old Ghazaryan, whom the Azerbaijani authorities are trying to present as a ‘saboteur’, has a history of mental illness, which has prevented him from being conscripted for military service.

The official Yerevan earlier slammed Baku’s attempts to present a person with serious health problems as a criminal as a ‘gross violation of the international humanitarian law’, stressing all measures are being taken to return the captive to Armenia.
