Mammadov told journalists that it is a provocation of the news agency.

Department Chief noted that he didn’t give such an instruction and the reports are groundless: “If I am not wrong, it was disseminated by "Turan" news agency. I was very surprised at this news. I supposedly told someone to detain them while they were going abroad by plane. This is completely false, this news agency is directly engaged in provocation. They are deliberately misleading the public.”

Human rights defender Leyla Yunus was detained with her husband Arif Yunus at the Baku airport on April 28. They were reportedly detained when they were going to have the Baku-Doha flight.
