Azeri opposition to defy protest ban

From Radio Free Europe:

Azerbaijani Interior Minister Ramil Usubov today warned that authorities will break up any unsanctioned anti-government rally ahead of the 6 November legislative election.

Usubov's comments came as the Azadliq (Freedom) opposition coalition said it would defy a ban from Baku city authorities and hold a protest march in the center of the Azerbaijani capital on 25 September.

Usubov today also warned former parliament speaker Rasul Quliyev that he will be arrested as soon as he enters Azerbaijan.
