The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has upheld the application of Artak Zeynalyan and Siranush Sahakyan to apply immediate measures in the case of four servicemen captured in Azerbaijan.
The human rights activists filed a complaint with the European Court demanding that the fundamental rights of the Armenian servicemen captured during the aggressive actions unleashed by Azerbaijan on November 16 in the sovereign territory of Armenia be ensured.
In the case of four servicemen, the advocacy group applied to ECHR, in the case of the others - the representative of Armenia in the European Court. The purpose of the applications is to guarantee the rights of captive servicemen to a life and to be free from torture guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights.
“We have videos where people were seen under the jurisdiction of Azerbaijan, under surveillance. There is enough evidence. We are talking about 2-3 dozen people. We have met with relatives, we are in touch with them,” Zeynalyan told Lurer.
