Baku, 2 September: The Karabakh Liberation Organization (KLO)
has appealed to the leadership of the republic and the heads of the
law-enforcement agencies for conducting a detailed investigation into
the identities and the military career of the Armenian officers who
intend to take part in the Cooperative Best Effort exercise as part
of the NATO Partnership for Peace programme in Baku on 13-27 September.

The appeal says that the appropriate bodies should investigate if
the Armenian officers took part in military operations during the
Karabakh war and if they have been involved in war crimes. If such
facts are discovered, they should arrest [the Armenian officers]
and bring [them] to account.

The KLO is also planning actions of protest. Its deputy chairman
Samil Mehdi said that the KLO will hold nonstop protests during the
exercise to demand that the authorities deport the Armenian officers
from Azerbaijan if they visit Baku.
