YEREVAN, AUGUST 3, ARMENPRESS. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has given Azerbaijan by August 10 to provide information about Rashid Beglaryan, the Nagorno-Karabakh man who was kidnapped by Azerbaijani servicemen, the Office of the Representative of Armenia on International Legal Matters said in a statement.

Azerbaijan must provide information on the person’s location, detention conditions, state of health and received treatment, as well as possible return.

The Nagorno-Karabakh authorities had initially announced that Rashid Beglaryan, a resident of Nagorno-Karabakh, accidentally crossed into Azerbaijani-held territory while intoxicated and was subsequently arrested on August 1. However, the Nagorno-Karabakh prosecutor’s office later said that Beglaryan was actually kidnapped by Azerbaijani servicemembers while on his way to Armenia.
