Alliance “Azerbaijan without political prisoners’ demands release of human rights defenders

The Public Alliance “Azerbaijan without political prisoners” demands the immediate release of all political prisoners and an end to repression against human rights defenders and activists. This is stated in a statement of the Alliance.

The statement noted that the Alliance believes the existence of direct political power orders in the arrest of prominent human rights defenders. Thus, the authorities are taking revenge on them for their resolute and consistent struggle for freedom of speech and assembly.

The statement listed the names of the human rights defenders arrested last days: Leyla Yunus, Arif Yunus, the head of the Human Rights Club Rasul Jafarov, an activist of the party Musavat Faraj Kerimli, and an activist of PFPA Youth Committee Ruslan Nasirli.
