"In order to increase the feeling of hatred in Armenian society, the prisoners were handed over to the civilian population and demonstratively humiliated and insulted. They were used as slaves, especially in harmful industries. On the days of remembrance of the "Armenian genocide" and on the graves of armed formations, terrorists, and Armenian soldiers who died in battles, sacrifices were made. Prisoners were used in the demolition and looting of historical monuments, cemeteries, houses, and administrative buildings in occupied settlements; in other words, in acts of vandalism. They were provoked to commit physical and immoral acts against each other, etc.," said the ombudsperson.

According to Aliyeva, there are also facts of incitement by the Armenian special services of hostages to commit terrorist acts and sabotage against the Republic of Azerbaijan through threats and blackmail.
