According to the investigation, the criminals purposefully identified houses where young women lived during passport checks. The occupants then broke into their homes and sexually assaulted them at gunpoint.
The occupiers did not care about their age or condition. Among the victims of their actions were a pregnant woman, a five-year-old child and two other minor girls born in 2004 and 2007. In total, 12 people suffered from the criminal actions of the occupiers.
The investigation into sexual violence and ill-treatment of civilians has been completed, and the indictment has been sent to court.
