The Court of General Jurisdiction of Syunik Province of Armenia sentenced the two terrorist mercenaries involved in the hostilities against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) to life in prison.
In an interview with Armenian News-NEWS.am, Prosecutor Arshak Martirosyan informed that the accused-on-trial declared themselves partially guilty in court.
Touching upon the issue on their extradition, the prosecutor stated that he wasn’t aware of that.
The criminal case has substantiated that Syrian nationals Muhrab Muhammad al-Shkheri and Yusef Alabet al-Haji took part—in exchange for payment—in the war unleashed by the Azerbaijani leadership, during which their actions were aimed at destroying or causing serious bodily injury to civilians in Armenia and Artsakh and to those persons who were not directly involved in hostilities during the armed conflict. And the purpose of these actions was to intimidate the civilian population
Al-Shkheri and Al-Haji have been charged under several articles of the Criminal Code of Armenia for committing the abovementioned crimes.
