Fuad Ismayilov Arrested Again

Baku / 22.05.20 / Turan: Public activist Fuad Ismayilov by today's decision of the Surakhani district court was arrested in administrative order for 2 months.

He was found guilty under Art. 206 (illegal use of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, and their manufacture, purchase, storage, transportation or shipment not for sale in the amount necessary for personal consumption) of the Code of Administrative Offenses (CAO).

This was reported by his loved ones.

Ismayilov pleaded not guilty.

When the activist was taken out of court, he stated that he had been slandered.

“At first, the police drew up a protocol about me. Then they changed it. The police themselves planted the drugs on me,” Ismayilov said.

Turan did not manage to get comments from the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Note that Ismayilov was already arrested for two months on March 7, 2020 under the same article of the Code of Administrative Offenses. Then he said in court that the employees of the 32nd station of the Surakhani district police department had planted drugs on him. He also reported torture by the police.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs rejects allegations of torture in the police.

Fuad Ismayilov became well known for exposing the fraud in the February 9 early parliamentary elections.

As a member with an advisory vote of the precinct election commission in the 32nd Surakhani third constituency, he posted a video of the violations at the precinct. Police officers removed him from the site with violence.

After the election, he wrote on the wall of the building opposite the CEC “Phew, Mazi!”, thus expressing a protest against the head of the CEC, Mazahir Panahov, for refusing to consider complaints of fraud during the election. —21C06-
