Baku/08.06.21/Turan: A trial of Euljekjiyan heard video-testimonies of his cohabitant Maral Nazaryan who was detained with him but later released. She said that together with Euljekjiana, they used to visit Armenia. The last time, because of the pandemic, they failed to leave for Lebanon. When the war in Karabakh began, they arrived in Shusha together.

A Lebanese citizen named Hovak promised Euljekjiyan, in addition to his salary, to pay $ 2,000-2,500 a month for his participation in the war. According to the Nazaryan, she was against it but her cohabitant agreed and went to war. He told her that he was in the Khojavend direction, and they were provided with modern weapons and uniforms there.

However, a few days later, Euljekjiana left the front line as saying that "the Azerbaijanis are very strong" and that all the mercenaries from abroad had been killed. After that, the couple went to Lachin. On November 10, when they heard that the war was over, they came to Shusha to collect their belongings but were detained by the Azerbaijani military.

The accused, however, rejected the testimony of his cohabitant. According to him, he was forcibly sent to fight in Karabakh by the Armenian military. He admitted that he was in the Khojavend front but denies using weapons.

As for photos from of Euljekjiyan' phone where he mounts a mortar in the trench, as well as other photos and videos where he is depicted with other armed mercenaries, the accused said that he was filmed in order to show off in social networks.

Then the judicial investigation was over, and the Prosecutor General spoke. He asked to sentence the accused to 20 years of imprisonment  The next court hearing is scheduled for June 11.—06D-
