A while ago, Azerbaijan’s law-enforcement authorities had issued an international arrest warrant for Arif Mammadov, 53, and Elnur Mizayev, 40.

Elnur Mirzayev faces charges under Articles 320.1 (falsification of certificate or other official document giving the rights or releasing from duties, with a view of its use or selling of such document, as well as manufacturing in same purposes or selling of counterfeit state awards of the Azerbaijan Republic, stamps, seals, forms) and 302.2 (violation of legislation on operative-search activity with use of special means, intended for secret dredging the information) of the Criminal Code of Azerbaijan. His named was mentioned in the illegal ‘migrant case’ in Azerbaijan a few years ago.  

 

Mirzayev is believed to have emigrated using a fake document of Musavat Party, though the party rejected this allegation.
