According to the information of the NKR Prosecutor General’s Office, the law-enforcement bodies today launched a criminal case connected with the incursion of the Azerbaijani reconnaissance-sabotage group into the territory of Nagorno Karabakh in the direction of Karvachar. Armenian Defense Minister told reporters today that the Azerbaijani citizens, who illegally crossed the Armenian border, will be prosecuted in line with the requirements of the Armenian and international law.

“Azerbaijan undertook an act of sabotage, involving a criminal group familiar with the area. They have committed a crime under our law, a criminal case has been opened and they will be persecuted in compliance with our legislature and the international norms, Seyran Ohanyan said.

Recall, that Armenian Officer, Major Sargis Abrahamyan, 42, was killed as a result of the subversive act, a 37-year-old woman – Karine Davtyan – was wounded.

The Minister did not rule out that the disappearance of Smbat Tsakanyan, a 17-year-old resident of Karvachar, could also be linked to the subversive act. He said the investigation will give answers to all questions.
