According to him, how the hotel is managed, pricing have nothing to do with Vugar Alakbarov. Elnur Kalantarov added that member of Judo Federation Executive Committee Vugar Alakbarov trains Azerbaijani national team in Ismayilli and other regions. He said the members of Azerbaijan judo team, other sports teams sometimes stayed in that hotel, but neither the members of the federation, nor Vugar Alakbarov were at the hotel when the incident happened.
As regards the fact that head of Ismayilli region executive authority Nizami Alakbarov does not know who is the owner of the hotel, Elnur Kalantarov said as the hotel was rented out to another company, it is natural that head of executive authority does not know that person.
