The Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Serbia Eldar Hasanov was arrrested for embezzling budget funds, the RIA news agency reported.

It quoted the Azeri state security services which said that the ambassador had been under investigation. “The Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina Eldar Hasanov was arrested on suspicion of embezzling a large amount of money and wrongfully spending budget funds. He was arrested during the investigation and criminals proceedings are underway,” a statement said.  

The Ambassador was arrested in Azerbaijan during an investigation against a number of officials launched by the Foreign Ministry.  

Serbian Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic was on a visit to Baku this week following recent protests by the Azeri authorities over sales of weapons and munitions to Armenia which were used in a border incident.
