The press service of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan has released a statement.

According to Report, the statement reads:

"Consistent and purposeful reforms in human rights and liberties are carried out by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. Ilham Aliyev who pays special attention to this sphere.

"As always, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Mr. Ilham Aliyev has taken these appeals into account based on the principles of justice and humanism and recommended to the Attorney General of the Republic of Azerbaijan to undertake all necessary measures for the objective investigation of the criminal case and the adoption of a fair and humane decision.

Guided by the recommendations of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Azerbaijan has given relevant instructions to the investigative body on Mehman Huseynov's criminal case.

The investigatory body terminated Mehman Huseynov's criminal case factoring in that he is a young man, he has not been subjected to disciplinary action during the term of punishment, he is on the way of castigation, he has an elderly father who is in need of care, the criminal case that he was involved in is from the less serious crimes category, and, in fact, his behavior and individuality is not dangerous for the society.

Huseynov does not stage any hunger strike at present, his detention condition is normal,there is no complaint and demand in this regard.

The General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan warns those who try to create artificial agitation around Huseynov for personal motives and for political purposes, as well as to the media outlets which spread false information about Mehman Huseynon and informs that our state will take every resolution step to fight any illegal action aimed at violating the stability and peace established in our country by ensuring the rule of law. "
