ICRC representatives again reported on visits to captive ex-Artsakh leaders

In May, staff of the International Committee of the Red Cross again visited Ruben Vardanyan and other former leaders of Artsakh who are being held illegally by Azerbaijan.

“One-on-one meetings were held with detainees and arrangements were made for them to contact their families. According to its mandate, during its visits the ICRC assesses the treatment of detainees, the conditions of their detention and creates an opportunity to restore or continue communication with their families,” said Ilaha Huseynova, head of the public relations department of the ICRC’s office in Azerbaijan.
