Justice will be a bedrock for any sustainable peace, Armenia’s Human Rights Defender (Ombudsman) Arman Tatoyan told Foreign Policy, referring to the war crimes committed by the Azerbaijani forces against Armenian soldiers during the recent Artsakh war.

“Impunity leads to more torture,” said Tatoyan, whose office has prepared several reports documenting torture and inhumane treatment of Armenian prisoners of war (POWs).

“Impunity is a very dangerous thing,” he added.
