Protest action of family members of arrested believers

Relatives of believers arrested on charges of drug trafficking held a protest rally near the administration of the President of Azerbaijan today. They raised portraits of the arrested, declaring their innocence. One of the participants of the action told Turan that although the charges were officially filed on drugs, the arrested are being interrogated about possible ties with Iran, and pro-government propaganda presents them as "Iranian spies." The police did not interfere in the course of the action, but recommended the protesters to contact the reception department of the administration. Eventually, the protesters were put on a bus and removed from the territory. More than 100 people have recently been arrested from among the believers, who are represented as agents of the special services of Iran. However, subsequently, most of the detainees are charged with drug-related charges.
