Unsanctioned protests banned in Azerbaijan

From Baku Today:

Police will prevent all future unsanctioned protest actions, Interior Minister Ramil Usubov told reporters on Friday.

The Minister said that if major opposition Popular Front Party (PFPA) wants to hold any protest over the recent arrest of youth movement chairman Ruslan Bashirli, it may proceed strictly with the permission of the mayor’s office.

Usubov said that only sanctioned protests will be allowed. The opposition’s August 27 rally will be given a go-ahead as well, he added.
