The Coordinating Council of Prosecutor Generals of CIS Member States
suggested the General Prosecutor’s Office of Azerbaijan to discuss
the written request made by the RA General Prosecutor’s Office’s on
legal assistance concerning the criminal case initiated on the death
of the RA citizen Manvel Saribekyan who had been killed in October
2010 in Baku and to provide information about the results to the
Coordinating Council and the RA General Prosecutor’s Office.

Under the aegis of the International Committee of the Red Cross on
November 4, 2010 the body of the citizen of the Republic of Armenia
Manvel Mamikon Saribekyan killed in October 2010 in Baku was returned
to Armenia. On November 5, 2010 a criminal case was initiated case
according to the RA Criminal Code Article 104, parts 5 and 13 (murder
committed with particular cruelty and out of motives of national,
race or religious hate or fanatism) by the Investigation Division
of Tsambarak of the RA Police. The preliminary investigation of
the criminal case was tasked to the Investigation Department of the
National Security Service adjunct to the RA Government.

In order to carry out comprehensive and complete investigation
and guided by the Minsk Convention “On Legal Assistance and Legal
Relations in Civil, Family and Criminal Matters” 22 January 1993,
the RA Prosecutor General on December 14, 2010 sent a letter to the
Prosecutor General of Azerbaijan Mr. Zakir Bekir with the request
to provide assistance to the investigation of the mentioned criminal
case, in particular to inform whether any investigation on the case of
Manvel Mamikon Saribekyan’s violent death had been carried out by the
Investigation Bodies of Azerbaijan. The General Prosecutor’s Office
of the Republic of Armenia had also assured that the received data
and documents would be used only in the framework of the investigation.

The General Prosecutor’s Office of Azerbaijan did not reply to
the request made by the RA General Prosecutor’s Office. Taking
into consideration that the reply is of vital importance for the
preliminary investigation of the criminal case on April 5, 2011 the
Prosecutor General Aghvan Hovsepyan sent a letter to the Chairman of
the Coordinating Council of Prosecutor Generals of the CIS Member
States and the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Yuri
Chaika asking to assist in receiving a response to the written request.
