There is a difference between yesterday’s incident and what happened today. Some forces carry out propaganda and politicize the incident,” head of Ä°smayili region executive authority Nizami Alakbarov told APA.
Nizami Alakbarov said that the incidents have nothing to do with him as head of the region’s executive authority.
“I regularly meet with the residents, they personally know me. This morning I walked to the market, no one said anything to me. They say the protesters chanted slogans demanded my resignation. I am head of the region that has 82 000 people,” he said.
The head of region's executive authority refuted the reports that Emil Shamsaddinov, who was involved in the incident and was detained later, is his relative. He also refuted the information that the son of Minister of Labour and Social Protection Fuzuli Alakbarov was in the region during the incident.
Alakbarov said that he had nothing in common with “Chirag” hotel, where the incident occurred: “My house was also attacked, attempts were made to burn it. These are attempts of certain forces to politicize the incident.”
