158 people included in updated list of political prisoners in Azerbaijan
The updated list of the "Alliance for Freedom of Political Prisoners of Azerbaijan" includes three new names. In total, the list contains 158 people.
The UFPPA disseminated the updated list on June 23.
"We released the list a month ago. Unfortunately, political persecution continues at an accelerated pace. In fact, three new political prisoners appeared almost immediately after the publication of our list," reported Elshan Gasanov, a member of the UFPPA, the head of the Centre for Monitoring Political Prisoners.
