Coordinator of the Information center for Azerbaijani captives and hostages, human rights defender Ahmad Shahidov has addressed to the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Mrs. Dunja Mijatović. The human rights defender has given detailed information on Azerbaijani hostages Dilgam Asgarov, Shahbaz Guliyev and Elnur Huseynzadeh, said that since July 2014 he has been protecting the rights of these people, but regretted that international organizations remain silent on this issue. Noting the fact that Azerbaijan and Armenia are members of the Council of Europe, Ahmad Shahidov asked Mrs. Dunja Mijatović to comment on this issue as the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights.

Commenting on the statement made by the ICRC Azerbaijan Office on the regular visit of the International Committee of the Red Cross to the Azerbaijani hostages, human rights defender Ahmad Shahidov told to ARB Television that there is no accurate information about Dilgam Asgarov’s actual health: “We are not satisfied with the recent statement by the International Committee of the Red Cross regarding Dilgam Asgarov. Because, since November 1, 2017, no letter has been received from Dilgam Asgarov. Family members are rightly concerned. The Azerbaijan Office of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says that they meet with Azerbaijani hostages every month and supposedly Dilgam Asgarov himself does not want to write a letter. This is not convincing. Probably, Dilgam Asgarov has serious health problems, and for 13 months he has not sent a letter to his family. Family members worry about this. In this regard, we appealed to the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights to raise this issue on the agenda of the PACE Winter Session and to call on the Armenian side. We want to see solid evidence of Dilgam Asgarov’s health.”
