Ziyafat Asgarov: “There are no political prisoners in Azerbaijan”

Baku: The issue on the hearing of Nida members has been raised at today’s meeting of the Azerbaijani Parliament, APA reports. Igbal Aghazadeh said that the last hearing and prosecutor’s request were politically motivated.

He said it is inappropriate that prosecutor demands severe penalties for young people and the case of Nida members is a political issue.

First vice-speaker of the parliament Ziyafat Asgarov objected to the opinions of Aghazadeh: “There are no political prisoners in Azerbaijan. There are persons brought to justice over crimes. That’s all!”
