Lawyer: Criminal case opened against Adil Huseynov

Baku: Adil Huseynov is now detained in the Interior Ministry’s Main Department for Combating Organized Crime, Adil Huseynov’s lawyer Kamandar Nasibov told APA.

Nasibov said that a criminal case has been launched against him under article #178.3.2 (swindle with causing damage in large size) of the Criminal Code.

“His apartment was raided, but he was not imprisoned in remand. Huseynov was detained over the fact that the foreign company he runs in Dubai owes money to a bank,” the lawyer added.

His lawyer said that he has no information about him being the head of the International Bank’s Dubai branch.

Nasibov mentioned that the reports on Huseynov’s detention at the airport are unfounded.

Note that, Huseynov is the son of late police officer Fatulla Huseynov, killed by a gang headed by former chief operating officer of the Interior Ministry Haji Mammadov who was imprisoned for life.
