Despite the expiration of more than 10 years since the murder of businessman Elchin Aliyev in Kiev, these crimes have not yet been solved. The reason for this is the high patronage of the murderer in Azerbaijan, stated at today’s press conference the mother of the deceased, Samaya Aliyeva. She accuses the general of the armed forces, commander of a large military unit of the national army, Rovshan Akperov, of the murder of her son. “Rovshan Akperov is a murderer. His place is in prison, «said the mother of the deceased.


  1. Aliyev was killed on the night of June 1, 2001. According to his mother, he became a victim of intrigue and struggle for the post of Azerbaijani ambassador to Ukraine. Thus, the embassy was located in a building that belonged to E. Aliyev. By that time, the diplomatic mission of Nazim Ibrahimov, the current head of the State Committee for Work with the Diaspora, was ending.


Rovshan Akperov then studied at the military academy in Kiev and sought to promote his man, Talat Aliyev, to the post of ambassador. However, E. Aliyev could be a competitor to him. Akperov invited Aliyev to a feast in the courtyard of the embassy, ​​but the conversation did not work out. After that, Akperov and his people followed E. Aliyev and in a cafe near the embassy, the businessman was killed in front of witnesses. Akperov managed to avoid arrest only thanks to a certificate of immunity of Akperov, falsified by Ambassador Ibrahimov, says the mother of the deceased.


In this regard, the Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine sent all the materials to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Azerbaijan. However, for 10 years, despite numerous appeals to the Prosecutor General’s Office and other government agencies, the crime remains unsolved.


Officially, E.Aliyev’s parents are told that “the investigation continues,” but privately, they admit, “the general has high patrons”.


Two years ago, Aliyeva managed to get to President Ilham Aliyev in Gabala and handed him and his wife Mehriban Aliyeva her statement and a document from the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office on evidence of Rovshan Akperov’s involvement in the murder. The President promised to figure it out.


After that, Samaya Aliyev was received by the First Deputy Prosecutor General Rustam Usubov, but there were no results.


“I once again appeal to President Ilham Aliyev with an insistent appeal to fulfill his oath assurance on the Koran that he will defend the rights of all citizens. I ask and demand the well-deserved punishment of the murderer,” said the mother of the murdered businessman.


She also provided a copy of the official response to her inquiry from the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine. The document, in particular, states that the investigator who investigated the murder “obtained evidence of involvement in the murder of your son Akperov Rovshan Telman oglu”. Turan agency is ready to give the floor to all other persons and structures mentioned in this news release.
