Red Cross representatives visit Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev
Representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) visited Azerbaijanis Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev captured as hostages by Armenian Armed Forces, head of the Public Relations Department of the ICRC office in Azerbaijan Ilaha Huseynova said.
According to Huseynova, in October and November, the ICRC representatives based on the structure’s mandate visited the persons detained during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
"During the visit, the representatives monitored conditions of the hostages’ detention, their health status and other issues, as well as informed their families about their standing," she said.
During an operation in July 2014 in Shaplar village of 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. A "criminal case" was initiated against them. Afterwards, a "court" sentenced Asgarov to life imprisonment and Guliyev to 22 years in prison.
