MEP urges Azerbaijan to stop sham trial of Armenian POWs

Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Loucas Fourlas has called on Azerbaijan to end the sham trial of Armenian prisoners of war (POWs).

“Stop the sham trial of the Flag of Armenia Armenian prisoners of war being held captive by Azerbaijan. I  call on the EU and the EU Commission to make a substantial contribution to the release of the POWs," he tweeted on Thursday.

The Baku Court of Grave Crimes started the trial of 14 Armenian POWs who Azerbaijan accuses of terrorism and subversion. The prisoners standing trial in Baku were captured by Azeri forces after the trilateral statement that ended the 44-day war in Artsakh from the areas of then Armenian-held Hin Tagher and Khtsaberd villages.

The Baku court has recently sentenced Lebanese-Armenian captive Viken Euljekian to 20 years in prison.
