Today Nizami district Court of Ganja ordered the arrest of journalist Arshad Ibrahimov, who is currently working with the sites and Moderator.az Avropa.info. According to the uncle of the arrested journalist, the reason for the arrest is the complaint of Mohammed Bagirov,the former head of the Education Department of Kalbajar region.

Formerly a journalist published an article about the illegal actions of Bagirov. After that, a lawsuit was filed against the author who was accused of extortion.

Bagirov argued that journalist extorted from him 30,000 manat for not publishing a critical material.

Thereafter, the police allegedly received a complaint that the journalist puts pressure on witnesses. When the case went to trial, these same witnesses testified that the pressure was exerted on them by Mohammed Bagirov. Nevertheless, the court has arrested a journalist, said Arshad Ibrahimov’s uncle.

Attempts of Turan to get comment from a journalist named Ramiz were futile. The lawyer refused to talk to the press, and even did not say under what article he was prosecuted.

Earlier, Arshad Ibrahimov was a regional correspondent for the newspaper “Azadlig”, and since the end of last year has been collaborating with news sites.
