Yeni Fikir member beaten by investigators

From Radio Free Europe:

Sarvan Sarkhanov, a member of the opposition youth group Yeni Fikir, whose leader Ruslan Bashirli has been charged with plotting to overthrow the Azerbaijani leadership, was summoned on 11 August to the Prosecutor-General's Office, Turan reported. Investigators demanded that Sarkhanov provide testimony incriminating Azerbaijan Fopular Front Party Chairman Ali Kerimli, whom the authorities depict as Bashirli's mentor. Sarkhanov was beaten and threatened with arrest when he refused to comply with that demand but subsequently released.
