Azeri Soldier Sentenced to 12 Years

BAKU (Itar-Tass)–The Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of Azerbaijan on Tuesday passed a verdict on Tengiz Suleimanov–a former serviceman of Azerbaijan–sentencing him to 12 years imprisonment for an attempt to pass classified information to foreign secret services.

The accused was arrested in the act about two months ago by members of security personnel. He pleaded guilty–and fully confessed his guilt during the investigation and court examination–a Supreme Court source has told Itar-Tass.
