Tuesday, 31 July 2012

Yusef Khodadadi, Chairman of the Ardabil Revolutionary Court, reported the arrest of two Azerbaijani “spies.” He said that four Azeri citizens are currently being held in prison in the province. Two of them are charged with spying, while the other two are charged with drug trafficking. Azerbaijani poets Farid Huseynov and Sahriyar Hacizada were detained on drug charges in Tabriz (East Azerbaijan Province) in early May. Their charges were later changed to spying against Iran.
