Over the past ten days, the number of arrested members of the Popular Front of Azerbaijan (PFPA) has reached seven. Ali Kerimli, the party leader, is deprived of the Internet and mobile communication, the party has informed.
On April 17, two more party activists were detained – Islam Islamzade and Vugar Abilov. On the same day, Abilov was sentenced to 20 days of arrest on charges of disobedience to the police. Islamzade, who was found guilty by the court of violating the quarantine regime and disobeying the police, was arrested for 30 days today, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was told at the PFPA.
The party has specified that Islam Islamzade was detained after he brought a modem to the leader of the party Ali Kerimli, who was left without Internet and mobile communication.
