“I was captured by Armenians in 1993,” said victim Rauf Gafarov at the court trial on the case of Armenian servicemen Ludwig Mkrtichyan and Khosrovyan Alyosha Aramaisovich, charged with brutal torture of Azerbaijanis captured during the First Karabakh War.
“When in captivity, we were forced to demolish houses in Aghdam and Fizuli and carry stones for construction work. Armenians pulled out my teeth. We were employed as workers on the pig farm of the then ‘defense minister’ of the separatist regime, Samvel Babayan. They did not give food or water. Armenian children were brought from school to insult us,” the victim said.
