Yeni Fikir: Leader was drunk on video

From Radio Free Europe:

Two deputy chairmen of Yeni Fikir, Said Nuriev and Fikret Faramazoglu, gave a different account of Bashirli's encounter in Tbilisi [a videotaped meeting in which he supposedly took money from Armenian agents] at a news conference in Baku on 5 August, day.az reported. Nuriev said Bashirli was offered the $2,000 by representatives of Georgian and Armenian "democratic forces." They said he was drunk at the time and hypothesized that his drink might have been spiked. They said that Bashirli returned the money the following day. Legal expert Tofig Guliev told the same 5 August news conference that none of Bashirli's actions were unlawful and that there was no talk of seizing power in Azerbaijan. Bashirli's current whereabouts are unknown.
