Nemat Panahli was detained by plain clothed policemen on January 8th and taken to Nasimi District Police Office #21. He was arrested after citizen Eldar Rzayev reported to police that he had been beaten by Panahli and another man on January 7th, in Mirali Gashgay street. A criminal case has been brought against both men under Article 221.3 of the Criminal Code (hooliganism with use of a weapon).
According to his supporters, Panahli was actually arrested for anti-government articles published in the independent press, including the Nota PS, during and after the parliamentary elections.
