Mushfig Huseynov, Bizim Yol
Following his arrest on 24 July by national security officials, Huseynov was accused of corruption under article 331 (1) of the criminal code for allegedly taking a bribe of 3,500 dollars from Rizvan Aliyev, an employee of the ministry of labour and social security. Bizim Yol editor Bahaddin Haziyev said Huseynov had written a series of articles criticising the ministry. His lawyer, Vugar Hasayev, insists that his client never took any money and that the investigation was not conducted in an impartial manner.
