The Court of Heavy Crimes of Azerbaijan ruled to sentence army general Rovshan Akperov to ten years of imprisonment in a prison under a strict regime, reports.

The Court also partially satisfied the plaintiff’s claim and obliged Akperov to pay 40,000 manats as compensation for the moral damage that was caused, but the Court didn’t strip Akperov of the title of National Hero, the military rank of Lieutenant General and other awards and medals.

Akperov was detained in March 2021. The Prosecutor General’s Office had reported his arrest after he was charged with murdering Azerbaijani businessman Elcin Aliyev on June 1, 2001 in Kyiv.
