I have just learned that 84-year-old Misha Melkumyan, a civilian captured by the Azerbaijani armed forces, died this night. The Human Rights Defender (Ombudsman) of Armenia, Arman Tatoyan, on Friday morning noted this on Facebook
“Taking into account all the evidence and facts on inhuman treatment and cruelty of Armenians captured by Azerbaijani Armed Forces, the reasonable assumption on the reason of our compatriot’s death becomes clear.
My condolences to Misha Melkumyan’s all relatives,” Tatoyan added.
Earlier, Armenian News-NEWS.am reported that the Armenian side has denied the Azerbaijani side's claim that the Armenian side refused to receive Melkumyan.
