Third Yeni Fikir member arrested

From International Relations and Security Network:

Azerbaijan on Wednesday detained a third opposition youth leader allegedly involved in anti-government activities, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported. Murad Gasanly, a spokesman for the Azadlyq opposition bloc, said police had detained Ramin Tagiev, a leader of the Yeni Fakir (New Idea) youth movement. The arrest comes two days after the detention of another of the movement’s members, Said Nuri, who has since been hospitalized with apparent liver problems, according to RFE/RL. In August, the police arrested Yeni Fakir leader Ruslan Bashirli, who was implicated in an alleged anti-government plot.
