Repression in Azerbaijan due to emigration to Europe

Several Azerbaijani political immigrants deported from Germany were detained and interrogated in the Athletes’ Village in Baku.
The survey was conducted by investigators from the State Security Service and examined the migrants’ connections with political immigrant organizations and bloggers in Europe.
It is not easy to predict the outcome of this survey.

On the other hand, relatives and family members of political immigrants in Europe continue to be persecuted in Azerbaijan.

Police crackdowns on the family members of Talibov Bahruz Ramiz oglu, who is currently living as a political immigrant in Switzerland, have become commonplace in Azerbaijan. His family members in Azerbaijan are being pressured to stop Bahruz Talibov’s political activities. Otherwise, they threaten to arrest their relatives.
