Azerbaijani truck hijacked by gunmen in Italy found

Baku: A truck belonging to Azerbaijan that was hijacked by gunmen in Italy has been found, Muzeffer Koyugolge, a Turkish entrepreneur operating in Azerbaijan, told APA.

“After days of negotiations, Italian police found the truck, but the freight consisting of 22 tons of hazelnuts were missing,” he said.

According to him, Azerbaijani media’s extensive coverage of the incident prompted authorities to give a swift reaction to the problem.

“Right after the news came, the Turkish and Azerbaijani embassies in Italy began to deal with the issue and negotiate with Italian police. After days of negotiations, Italian police found the truck, but the freight consisting of 22 tons of hazelnuts worth 160,000 dollars were missing. Police required of us documents that confirm the truck belongs to us. So we obtained necessary documents from the Azerbaijani State Traffic Police Department and sent them to Italy,” he said.

Koyugolge also mentioned that as the truck hijacked in Italy was found, it is impossible to get it back.

“The Italian police haven’t returned the truck to us yet. We were said that the court will consider the issue and if it issues a judgment to give the truck back to us, then we can take it back. The law enforcement agencies in Italy behave us like offenders,” he added.

The entrepreneur once again asked the Turkish and Azerbaijani embassies in Italy for assistance. “We hope that the officials will review our request and we will get the truck back in a short time”, he added.

On October 16, a truck belonging to Azerbaijan, 22 tons of nuts worth of $160.000 on board was attacked by masked gunmen on the highway near Rome. The truck left from Zagatala for Italy. The men beat truck’s driver Necati Serin, tied his hands and legs and left him on the seashore. The attackers then hijacked the truck with the luggage inside.
