South Caucasus Network of Human Rights Defenders statement on arrests in Azerbaijan
[11.03.2011]
The South Caucasus Network of Human Rights Defenders condemns the recent interrogation of human rights defenders and last week arrests of youth activists and bloggers in Azerbaijan. We call upon the authorities to stop the repression of the civil society, and immediately release the five detained youth activists. We also urge the Azerbaijani authorities to respect freedom of expression and assembly of the people in Azerbaijan.
