Baku/11.02.22/ Popular Front Party activist Shahin Hajiyev denies the charge against him of drug trafficking.
He was detained on November 26, 2021 and the police charged him under the Article 234.4.3 (large-scale drug trafficking) of the Criminal Code.
In his address to the public, he stated that he was arrested on the basis of a trumped-up charge. “My apartment was actually raided and I was taken away without presenting documents. Two laptops were taken from my apartment. What could computers have to do with drugs?” he writes.
Hajiyev stated that he signed the protocols under torture. According to the activist, after his arrest, no examinations were carried out, and falsified conclusions were attached to the case.
“They wrote that a forensic narcological examination of November 29 found that I was suffering from heroin abuse. However, no examination was carried out on November 29. I never used cigarettes and alcohol,” Hajiyev writes.
The PFPA is convinced that the real reason for the arrest of the activist is his critical publications in social networks against the authorities. -06B-
