Azerbaijani court did not satisfy the appeal of Ruben Vardanyan

The Baku Court of Appeal rejected the appeal of Ruben Vardanyan, illegally detained by Azerbaijan, against the decision of the court of first instance to extend his arrest. The philanthropist will remain in the pre-trial detention center for another five months.

In addition to Ruben Vardanyan, the Armenian captives include seven other former leaders of Artsakh: Arkady Ghukasyan, Bako Sahakyan, Araik Harutyunyan, David Babayan, David Ishkhanyan, Levon Mnatsakanyan and David Manukyan. All of them recently had their arrests extended for five months.
