Investigation bodies consider it reasonable to keep ex-ministers Ali Hasanov and Farkhad Aliyev in custody, Eldar Nuriyev, Attorney Assistant told Trend.
Detainees lawyers have addressed the General Attorney ` s office with the demand to release their clients. However, the former did not satisfy their demand. There is valid reason for that. In compliance with the law, the punishment measures towards the accused people depend on the gravity of the committed crime. If his release may block the investigation or if the investigation reveals that he can escape, prisoner must be kept in custody, Nuriyev said.
