Armenian lawyers seek entry into Azerbaijan to defend prisoners of war (POWs) facing criminal charges in the country, lawyer Alexander Kochubaev said.

“Armenia’s Chamber of Advocates made a decision to apply to the competent authorities of Armenia and Azerbaijan, the Azerbaijani Bar Association, as well as other international organization over the issue of providing legal assistance to Armenian prisoners of war by Armenian lawyers, allowing their entry into Azerbaijan and guaranteeing their safety,” the lawyer wrote on Facebook.

He said if they are granted permission to enter the country, a “legal battle” will begin for the Armenian captives.

“I have joined the initiative and am ready to go to Azerbaijan to undertake the protection of the rights and interests of our prisoners of war,” Kochubaev said.

Incidentally, the Armenian Chamber of Advocates initiated a process of providing legal assistance to Armenian prisoners being held in Azerbaijan on Friday.
