The term of  the arrest of Fuad Ahmadli and Faig Amirov extended

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On 6 January the Nasimi District Court of Baku  extended for another two months the arrest of an activist of the Popular Front Party  Fuad Ahmadli and financial director of the newspaper "Azadlig" Faig Amirov - until March 12, Turan was told by the lawyer Asabali Mustafayev.

 

 The lawyer called unreasonable  the extension of the arrest by the public prosecutor.

"The prosecutor's office has motivated the extension by the need to conduct the investigation. It seems that  evidence of guilt is collected  after his arrest," Mustafayev said, noting that there is no  real evidence justifying their detention. "Fuad Ahmadli  has no opportunity to influence the course of the investigation or hiding. Why  is he kept in custody? " said Mustafayev.

He noted that  he had already forwarded to the European Court of Human Rights complaint against the arrest of  Ahmadli.

Ahmadli and Amirov  were arrested in August 2016 on charges of having links with the Turkish preacher Fethullah Gulen. Ahmadli  is accused of distributing personal data of subscribers of "Azerfon" mobile company where he worked. Amirov  is accused of inciting sectarian  hatred, as a representative of Gulen in Azerbaijan.
