According to preliminary information, Markovic may have taken bribes from Azerbaijan.

The investigation stems from a report about a reservoir located in the Sarsang region in Nagorno Karabakh.

The report, approved by the PACE Committee on in January 2016, states that "inhabitants of frontier regions of Azerbaijan are deliberately deprived of water."
