Armenia: Appeal case: Alleged ill-treatment of serviceman Karen Asloian
Twenty-two year old Karen Asloian, who is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence, is said to have been tortured, threatened and psychologically pressured in pre-trial detention at Stepanakert military police station in February 1999, reportedly in an attempt to force him to confess to a murder. There are allegations that the investigation carried out into these reports was not thorough and impartial, and that his case file was lost by the office of the General Procuracy.
