Presidential Administration says arrest of opposition members politicized

The arrest of Musavat Party Deputy Chairman Tofig Yagublu and Real Movement Co-Chairman Ilgar Mammadov is being politicized by some internal and external forces, Head of Azerbaijani Presidential Administration's Social and Political Department Ali Hasanov said.

"Everyone has to obey the laws of Azerbaijan. Appropriate investigation will find out whether these people obey the laws or not," Hasanov said.

Earlier Azerbaijani Prosecutor General's Office disseminated information that Yagublu and Mammadov are charged of making calls which are aimed at the violation of socio-political stability during the Ismayilli events.

The report released by the Interior Ministry and Prosecutor General's Office states that the investigation revealed Yagublu and Mammadov, arriving in Ismayilli on Jan. 24, and calling on residents of the region to violate the socio-political stability, resist the police and block movement of vehicles.
