German Sterligov arrested at Moscow Domodedovo Airport
MOSCOW, AUGUST 31, ARMENPRESS. Russian business man German Sterligov was arrested at Domodedovo Airport minutes after the Yerevan-Moscow plane landed. As “Armenpress” reports, citing BBC, Sterligov’s lawyer Artur Hayrapetov informed the mass media about the arrest. According to preliminary information, the businessman was arrested by customs officers when crossing the border of the RF.
“He arrives in Moscow from Yerevan today at 5 o’clock and he was arrested when crossing the state border. In all likelihood, the arrest of the businessman is connected with the international warrant for his arrest”, the lawyer informed.
Court of Baku Nasimi district filed a lawsuit against German Sterligov for “public anti-state calls” and for “illegally crossing the state border of Azerbaijan” on July 28.
Commenting on the fact of filing a lawsuit against him in Azerbaijan, Sterligov mentioned in his official “Vkontakte” page that it is Azerbaijan’s response to his proposal of conducting a peaceful round table discussion with Russian, Armenian and Azerbaijani experts. Sterligov stressed that Azerbaijanis are afraid of an open discussion on the facts about the historical belonging of Karabakh. Armenians are not afraid of this topic, the Russians are not either. And only Azerbaijan shows hysteria and threatening.
