Today marks five years since two Azerbaijani civilians, Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev were taken hostage by Armenia.

Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev were taken hostage by the armed forces of Armenia while visiting the graves of their parents in the occupied Kelbajar region of Azerbaijan and Hasan Hasanov who was with them during the hostage-taking, was killed. Based on false and fabricated accusations made by the illegal regime established in the territories of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenia, a sham trial was held over them, as a result of which Dilgam Asgarov was sentenced to life imprisonment, and Shahbaz Guliyev to 22 years imprisonment.

Today’s topic of the “Gundem” program of ARB 24 Television was about the Azerbaijani hostages Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev. Answering questions from presenter Rasim Sharifov, coordinator of the Information Center for Azerbaijani Captives and Hostages, human rights defender Ahmad Shahidov informed about the steps taken to protect the rights of Azerbaijani hostages over the past five years and shared his views on the challenges ahead.
