“He got out of the tent, did not have time to take the weapon” ․  Advocate of a major arrested after captivity


Major Narek Yerimyan, who was taken prisoner from Jermuk military base on November 16, spent 21 days in captivity, returned to Armenia and was arrested. His lawyer, Carmen Poghosyan, told CivilNet’s Tsorg Tosunyan that his client had two minor children and a pregnant wife. This circumstance was not taken into account by the Court of Appeal and upheld the motion of the investigative body. According to Poghosyan, Yerimyan was taken prisoner in conditions independent of him. Knowing that the enemy had entered the Armenian position, he left the tent, wanted to take up arms, but did not succeed. Major Yerimyan was beaten in Baku prison and subjected to psychological pressure. He was offered to be transferred to a third country, but he was against it.
