The Supervisory Board of the Agency for State Support to Non-Governmental Organizations is holding a meeting on media workers who were killed in landmine explosion in Kalbajar.
According to Report, the chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Agency Azay Guliyev said that this is yet another crime committed by Armenia:
"Armenia still does not want to give a map of mined areas and is not interested in this direction. This is a direct violation of international humanitarian law and norms. Today, this action of Armenia is crossing the red line in the true sense of the word. The world community must not remain silent about the deaths of innocent people, civilians and people who perform their professional duties. About 130 Azerbaijani citizens have been injured by landmines, and nearly 25 people have been killed since the signing of the November 10 statement."
At about 11.00 am on June 4, 2021, a Kamaz passenger car with employees of TV channels and news agencies dispatched to the de-occupied Kalbajar region for the performance of their official duties was hit by an anti-tank mine while driving in the direction of the Susuzlug village. Three people, including Siraj Abishov (cameraman of AzTV), Maharram Ibrahimov (employee of AzerTag news agency), Arif Aliyev (deputy representative of the head of the Executive Power in the Susuzlug village) died, and four others were hospitalized with various injuries.
The Military Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan has launched a criminal case under Article 100.2 (planning, preparation, initiation, or waging wars of aggression), 116.0.6 (violation of international humanitarian law during an armed conflict), and other articles of the Criminal Code.
Investigation is underway.
