Azerbaijan gives in to Turkish demands, seizes ‘prohibited books’

In Baku, houses of suspected supporters of Fethullah Gülen searched

In the villages of Sakhil and Lokbatan, during searches carried out in the houses of five supporters of preacher Fethullah Gülen, law enforcers discovered prohibited books. This was reported by the law enforcement bodies of Azerbaijan.

Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, who lives in the United States, is accused by the Turkish authorities of organization of an armed coup committed at night of July 16. Fethullah Gülen himself has declared that he denied those accusations. On August 15, the Azerbaijani General Prosecutor's Office declared that it instituted criminal proceedings against supporters of Fethullah Gülen in the country. According to the opposition, the law enforcement bodies use alleged connection with Fethullah Gülen as motives for arrests of activists.

In the village of Sakhil, during a search carried out in the house of Rizvan Gamidov, staff members of the Police Department for the Garadag District found 159 copies of books and 9 magazines, the promotion and dissemination of which were prohibited. In the village of Lokbatan, in the house of Ilkin Ibragimov, law enforcers found and seized 14 books, in the house of Samir Ibragimov 17 books, in the house of Terikhanym Ibragimova 10 books, and in the house of Gandab Guseinova 15 copies of books, the "APA" reports today with reference to the law enforcement bodies.
