Activists posting placards in support of H.Ismaylova arrested
Member of the Supreme Majlis of the Sheki branch of the Azerbaijan Popular Front, Ali Abdullayev was arrested last month on charges of hooliganism and disobeying police.
On the same charges is expected sentencing deputy chairman of the regional organization of the party, Mubariz Abdulkerimov.
According to local sources, the real reason for the arrest of the two activists became the fact that they posted on January 14 in Sheki at bus stops and buildings slogans: "Free Khadija!" in Azerbaijani and English languages.
On January 15 was arrested Abdulkerimov, who was summoned to police by the police officer Khazar.
Other activists came to the district department to find out the reasons for the detention of comrade, but they were told nothing. Late at night, Police Major Vugar Khalilov spoke insultingly about Khadija Ismailova, and condemned the activists putting up posters in her support. In response Abdullayev spoke negatively about those who imprisoned Ismaylova, and after that he was detained.
Both prisoners refused state lawyers. Their arrest will be appealed.
Note that the day before was arrested another activist, Abdurahmanly Rauf, who was later released.
