In February, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) representatives once again visited Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev, Azerbaijani hostages detained by Armenia in the course of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno Garabagh conflict, Ilaha Huseynova, head of the Public Relations Department of the ICRC office in Azerbaijan, told APA

“We continue to regularly visit these people. In accordance with its mandate, the ICRC organizes visits to monitor the conditions of detention and treatment of detainees, as well as help ensure their communication with their families,” Ilaha Huseynova added.

Note that during an operation in July 2014 in Azerbaijani Kalbajar district occupied by Armenia, the Armenian special forces killed an Azerbaijani Hasan Hasanov, and took hostage two other Azerbaijanis, Shahbaz Guliyev, and Dilgam Asgarov. Body of Hasan Hasanov was returned from the enemy side and buried in Baku. A "criminal case" was initiated against them. Afterward, a "court" sentenced Asgarov to life imprisonment and Guliyev to 22 years in prison.
