The Prosecutor General's Office of Azerbaijan has issued a statement.
According to Report, the press service of the organization said in a statement:
"As previously reported, numerous videos depicting the alleged acts of abuse by Azerbaijani and Armenian service members, insulting the bodies of servicemen and civilians killed in hostilities, as well as inhumane treatment of captured servicemen and civilians have been disseminated in some media outlets and social media pages.
"Excluding fake videos during the analysis conducted by the Prosecutor General's Office and the Military Prosecution Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan, criminal proceedings have been launched under the relevant articles of the Criminal Code of Azerbaijan on the video footages, which seem to reflect reality, as well as on each of the facts of killing captives by beheadings.
"The Prosecutor General's Office has twice officially reported criminal proceedings' initiation on the facts mentioned above and the continuation of operational-investigative measures to bring the perpetrators to justice and identify other persons. However, the other party's failure to disclose any of the facts stated confirms that the Armenian law enforcement agencies do not investigate these crimes, and the Armenian leadership demonstrating a lack of political will does not intend to take any further steps to punish the perpetrators.
"The Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan addressed international organizations to urge Armenian law enforcement agencies to take necessary measures in connection with the insulting actions on the corpses of Azerbaijani service members killed during the hostilities, video footages of inhumane treatment of captured Azerbaijani service members, as well as killing and injuring Azerbaijani civilians. The addresses also called on Armenia to fulfill its international obligations and conduct an open and fair investigation of criminal facts.
"Necessary and intensive investigative actions are underway. All criminal cases related to illegal activities against the Azerbaijani servicemen, killing 101 and injuring 423 Azerbaijani civilians, are investigated by the prosecution authorities.
"The Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan, which organized its work transparently and openly under the instructions and recommendations of President Ilham Aliyev, Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, reiterates that all possible measures will be taken to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice within the existing legal mechanism and international law. Detailed information will further be available to the public.
"The Prosecutor General's Office believes that the Armenian law enforcement agencies should investigate crimes committed by the servicemen of their country under international law requirements and provide detailed information to the world community."
