The Military Prosecutor's Office of Azerbaijan has initiated a criminal case on the fact of the crime committed by a sabotage group member of Armenian armed forces Arsen Bagdasaryan, said a message from Azerbaijani Military Prosecutor's Office on Feb.12.
Armenian serviceman Arsen Bagdasaryan was captured by Azerbaijani servicemen, as he crossed the contact line of Azerbaijani and Armenian armies in the direction of Aghdam district on Dec.26, 2014.
In this connection, Azerbaijani Military Prosecutor's Office has initiated a criminal case on the Articles 29,120.2.7; 29,120.2.12 and 29,282.2 of the country's Criminal Code, according to the message.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
