The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan is concealing the death of a serviceman.
“On the evening of August 14, we were informed that my brother, Mikyail Gachayev, had committed suicide at the military unit in the early hours of that same day. We don’t have details and want the case to be investigated,” the soldier’s brother Mushfig Gachayev told Turan.
“We want to know whether it was suicide or not. Why would a soldier commit suicide after only eight months of military service? He didn’t have mental disorders. Even though he assured us that he had fought with a fellow serviceman, the Military Prosecutor’s Office was investigating the case. We have been told that my brother had written a letter apologizing to his parents for committing suicide, but we don’t have access to the letter,” the brother of the deceased soldier said.
Turan failed to receive commentaries from the Ministry of Defense and the Military Prosecutor’s Office.
