According to the information gathered in the archives of the State Commission, there are reports of mass graves in several places in Shusha, Eldar Samadov, the deputy head of the working group of the State Commission on Prisoners of War, Hostages and Missing Persons said in a statement to journalists.
Report informs that Samadov said the State Commission is currently engaged in investigative work in this regard:
"Azerbaijani citizens who were captured and taken hostage during the occupation of Shusha were kept here in inhumane conditions. There are many international criminal cases against them, facts of violation of humanitarian norms are known. According to our analysis, 360 Azerbaijani prisoners and hostages were kept here during the occupation. Of them, 216 were released as a result of the negotiations held by the State Commission. But the fate of the others is still unknown. We assume that the newly discovered remains belong to the people we are looking for."
