Azerbaijan’s State Commission on Prisoners of War, Hostages and Missing Persons has said that Shahbaz Guliyev, kept hostage by Armenian Armed Forces, was taken back to the detention facility on 16 October 2017 from Armenian capital Yerevan, where he was previously transferred for treatment.
Shahbaz Guliyev, who underwent medical examination, has no health problems, the State Commission told APA.
The State Commission noted that it had been informed of Shahbaz Guliyev’s relocation to Yerevan and return to the detention facility.
In July of 2014, Russian citizen Dilgam Asgarov and Azerbaijani citizen Shahbaz Guliyev were taken hostage and another Azerbaijani citizen Hasan Hasanov was shot to death by Armenian servicemen while trying to visit their homeland in Kalbajar. Hasan Hasanov’s body was taken from the enemy and buried in Baku.
On December 19, 2014, an illegal court of the separatist regime in Nagorno-Karabakh sentenced Dilgam Asgarov to life in prison and Shahbaz Guliyev to 22 years.
