His wife Malahat Zeynalli said that meetings with Avaz Zeynalli, who is in the pre-trial detention center of the State Security Service, are officially prohibited. “Even phone calls are not allowed. I haven’t spoken to him for 20 days and this proves once again that the case is political and aimed at silencing Avaz.”
She noted that during the searches, money were seized from the house of Avaz Zeynalli. “This is our family budget, which concerns not only Avaz. They were taken away, and I cannot tell these people within 20 days to return money. Sometimes they say that they made a deposit in the bank, or sometimes else. Apparently, they are going to put the strongest influence and pressure on Avaz.”
