[:en]In the Shuvelan pre-trial detention center-3 they it is not allow the change of clothes and medicines to the opposition politician Tofig Yagublu.
This was reported to Turan by the daughter of the politician Nigar Hazi.
According to her, Yagublu has been in the same clothes for a month now.
“We cannot give him either clothes or other necessary things. How can you be kept in prison for a month in the same quarantine regime in the same clothes? This is at a time when hygiene is so important. We worry about father’s health. We cannot even give him medicine. Introducing bans, all these points must be taken into account,” said Hazy.
However, the head of the public relations department of the Prison Service, Mehman Sadigov, denied information about the ban on transferring clothes to Yagublu.
“The quarantine regime has been introduced in prisons and therefore, the acceptance of parcels and the provision of meetings has been temporarily suspended. However, there are no problems with the transfer of clothes and medicines,” Sadigov said.
* Tofiq Yagublu, a member of the Musavat party and a member of the National Council of Democratic Forces was arrested on charges of hooliganism and bodily harm on March
The arrest took place a few days after the speech of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev with threats against the opposition. Yagublu can face up to 7 years in prison.
The “crime” of Yagublu was expressed in the fact that another car drove into his parked car and those sitting in it attacked him, and then blamed Yagublu himself.
Many international organizations have condemned the arrest of Yagublu, urging the authorities to release him immediately.
Opposition supporters are sure that the real reason for the arrest is a sharp criticism of the authorities’s policies and the publication of Yagublu on Facebook.
