Buisson: Azerbaijani murderer accused of beheading Artsakh elderly  citizen welcomed as  `national hero` in Baku

 Buisson: Azerbaijani murderer accused of beheading Artsakh elderly  citizen welcomed as  `national hero` in Baku

ArmInfo. Azerbaijani Kamil Zeynalli, accused of the brutal murder by beheading of an elderly  Armenian resident of Artsakh during the 44-day war, received a solemn welcome in Baku as a national hero. Jean-Christophe Buisson, deputy director of Le Figaro magazine, wrote in his account on Twitter (X).

"Briefly arrested in Moscow, Kamil Zeynalli was greeted as a hero at  the Baku airport, where local TV, on Aliyev's orders, rushed to  interview him. This Azerbaijani is accused of beheading an elderly  Armenian man during the 2020 Artsakh war," Busson noted. 

In turn, Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Mher Grigoryan, when asked  to comment on the incident with the Azerbaijani killer, noted that he  would not want to go into the details of what happened.  "I don't  want to touch on this in more detail, because collegial discussions  should take place regarding this issue, including between law  enforcement officers and our partners. Let's not rush, when there is  an official reaction, then we will talk," he said.

As ArmInfo previously reported, on the evening of February 20,  Russian law enforcement officers detained Azerbaijani national Kamil  Zeynalli, at Moscow Domodedovo Airport. The latter killed civilians  of Artsakh on camera during the 44-day war of 2020. Called for  violence against Armenians. The most sensational was the video where  he kills a defenseless Artsakh old man like a sacrificial lamb.  On  the same day, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry responded to the  situation and reported that the issue of the detention of Kamil  Zeynalli at Domodedovo Airport in Moscow was under the control of the  Azerbaijani Embassy in Russia.

The Armenian Ministry of Internal Affairs noted that on the afternoon  of February 21, they received an official letter from Russia about  the arrest of Kamil Zeinali, an Azerbaijani who was put on the  international wanted list by Armenia on charges of crimes against  humanity.

"On the afternoon of February 21, the unit that initiated the search  was informed by an official letter from the Russian Federation about  the arrest of the wanted person, with a request to confirm the fact  of the search.  In response, the unit that initiated the search  immediately confirmed that the person in question is under  international search and that the preventive measure should be  detention. Despite the information about the release of the wanted  person, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Armenia  has prepared a package of documents provided for in the extradition  protocol, which will be transferred to the Prosecutor General's  Office of the Republic of Armenia for transferring them to Russian  law enforcement agencies and carrying out the necessary actions for  extradition," the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Armenia said.

On the evening of February 21, it became known that Kamil Zeynalli  was released and left for Azerbaijan, where the killer was greeted,  according to tradition, as a national hero.

Notably, another Azerbaijani murderer, Ramil Safarov, who hacked to  death with an ax the sleeping Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan at a  NATO training camp in Budapest on February 19, 2004, was welcomed in  Baku on a slightly larger scale in August 2012.
