We are deeply troubled by the continued arrest of members of Azerbaijani civil society, Miller


Matthew Miller, US State Department Spokesperson, referred to the new arrests of activists in Azerbaijan.
 
Another prominent economist and journalist, Farid Mehralizade was arrested as part of the investigation on Abzas Media, even though there are facts that he’s not even related to that media organization. 
 
“We are deeply troubled by the continued arrest of members of Azerbaijani civil society. Those who exercise their fundamental freedoms, including freedom of expression, should not face arrest for doing so. And we continue to urge the Azerbaijani Government to immediately release all individuals who are unjustly detained and to respect the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all”, Miller said during the regular press briefing.
