Azerbaijani border guards have detained two people—Ramin Hajili (1983) and Fakhraddin Gasimov (1988)—for attempting to cross the state border near the Mazimgara village of the country’s Balakan district on June 4, the State Border Service told APA.
During the preliminary investigation, Ramin Hajili admitted to attempting to illegally cross the state border as he could not cross the border from a checkpoint due to being banned from leaving Azerbaijan. He also admitted that Fakhraddin Gasimov assisted him in crossing the border.
Gasimov too gave similar testimony.
Ramin Hajili said he had a debt of 250,000 manats and thus wanted to go abroad for work so he could repay it.
A criminal case has been opened against the detainees under relevant articles.
