Posted by Info on 26/07/2009

The chair of the European Union represented by the Sweden Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a statement condemning the arrest of young activists in Azerbaijan. “The European Union is deeply concerned with the arrest and imprisonment of young activists Adnan Gadzhizade and Emin Milli  in Azerbaijan”, states the document submitted to the “Caucasian Knot” correspondent at the EU office in Baku.

It should be noted that Kile Scott, head of the US mission in OSCE, also made a statement on July 23 at the sitting of the OSCE standing committee about violations of freedom of expression and fundamental human rights in Azerbaijan.
