Azerbaijani Ombudswoman Sabina Aliyeva and National Preventive
Mechanism (NPM) group members constantly visit facilities where
Armenian nationals, who have committed criminal offenses in
Azerbaijan's liberated territories, are being kept.
Notably, physician and psychologist members of the NPM Group
were also involved in monitorings.
According to Ombudswoman's office, during the monitoring, group
members held private talks with detained Armenian nationals along
with other detainees, and presented the legislative acts on the
appeal mechanisms to them in their languages. Besides, they mulled
the issues related to the detention conditions in cells, as well as
investigated their size, lighting, ventilation, personal hygiene,
nutrition, sanitary, and healthcare service.
Furthermore, it was assessed that compliance with the
requirements of the relevant legal norms concerning those persons
was put in place and their rights, including to the necessary
health service and psychological services, were ensured. The office
noted that the interviewed detainees had no complaints about
detention conditions, treatment, access to phone calls,
correspondences, the right to receive information about the outside
world (TV and publications), and access to healthcare services.
The monitoring observed that the cells were equipped with
literature and information leaflets in the languages of the
detainees and that they were provided with unhindered meeting
opportunities with the ICRC representatives.
Additionally, the independent observations of the trial
proceedings were carried out along with the visits.
At the time of monitoring, it was observed that all hearings
were organized in compliance with the legislation and with respect
to human rights and freedoms, as well as that the accused were
provided with lawyers and interpreters, and all legal opportunities
were created for all the accused and their lawyers.
