Azerbaijan Targets Father of Political Prisoner

Home / Blog / Azerbaijan Targets Father of Political Prisoner

On July 27, 2018, Zafar Ahmadli, the father of #SetThemFree political prisoner Fuad Ahmadli, was taken from his apartment and charged with “disobeying the police.” Human rights groups believe that his arrest was politically motivated due to his recent criticism of authorities on social media concerning political imprisonments. His son Fuad was arrested in 2016 and was later sentenced to four years in prison on charges of “abuse of power” and “conducting an unauthorized operative-search” shortly after helping to organize an opposition protest. Learn more about Fuad’s story here and share this Tweet to alert your community about Zafar’s unreasonable detention.
