Baku court discussing Ruben Vardanyan’s illegal custody term extension

A motion has been put to the court of Baku calling for the extension of the term of the preventive measure imposed on former State Minister of Artsakh, businessman and philanthropist Ruben Vardanyan, the Azerbaijani media reports.

Ruben Vardanyan, the former state minister of Artsakh and the co-founder of the Aurora humanitarian initiative, was abducted in September last year from the illegal checkpoint over the Hakari bridge and has been illegally held in custody in Azerbaijan since then.
