Brother of one of Azerbaijani Musavat party's opposition members Rashad Mammadov played a very big and important role in revealing criminal gangs engaged in the "emigration business", consisting of members of Azerbaijani opposition Musavat party, journalist, member of Musavat party Yafez Ekremoglu, who lives in Europe, wrote on a social network, referring to Germany’s Koblenz court’s decision on arrests and searches, Trend reports on Nov. 18.
"Mammadov gave the complete and truthful information, given that he himself could suffer,” the journalist added. “Therefore, attacks on him by Mustafa Hajibayli, who is engaged in these affairs and involved in the "emigration business" with his brother Arif Hajili (chairman of Musavat party) and his partners in crime are quite normal."
The journalist also shared the extract from the Koblenz court’s decision related to Rashad Mammadov.
The German law enforcement authorities detained former members of one of the Azerbaijani opposition parties. Seven members of the criminal gang were detained.
The local federal courts chose a preventive measure in the form of arrest for a period of six months in relation to the detained members of the criminal gang.
