The Baku Court of Appeals upheld the decision on the administrative arrest of activist of the Popular Front Party Ruslan Gara for 20 days. A lawyer Asabali Mustafayev said that, the court did not conduct an objective investigation.

The lawyer noted that over the past year, Gara was subjected to three administrative arrests and local courts rejected all his complaints. Now Gara intends to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights and ask for recognition of the violation of his rights and compensation.

Gara was arrested on August 11 for 20 days after taking part in a meeting of youth activists, discussing the issue of holding protests in defense of political prisoners and publishing statuses on this topic in social networks on the Internet.
