Azerbaijan, Baku, June 17 / Trend , A.Huseynbala/
Turkish businessman, former president of the Barmek company Huseyn Arabul, who attempted to illegally cross the Azerbaijani border, will be transferred to the Baku investigating cell on June 17, Arabul's attorney Abbas Atakishi told Trend .
Atakishi met with Arabul to display interest in conditions in the prison.
"The Turkish Embassy in Azerbaijan has appealed to adjusted agencies to meet with Arabul," Atakishi said.
Arabul is kept in the Bailov investigating cell N1. The Baku Appeal Court upheld the verdict by the Sabail District Court on imprisonment of Arabul to two months.
The Azerbaijani State Boundary Service released information about the arrest of ex-president of Barmek Arabul.
Arabul prepared a plan for illegal crossing the state border for a long period, said the incoming message to Trend . Turkish businessman bought bogus driver's license in the name of Ahmet Arslan.
He invited the citizens of Turkey Irfan Altynbarmak to Azerbaijan, and planned to leave for Kazakhstan by a lorry. However, the plan failed, and Arabul decided to leave for Georgia by crossing border illegally.
With the help of Turkish businessman working in Baku, Tariq Olmachin, Arabul connected with Ayhan Donmez and asked him to assist him to escape from Azerbaijan and promised $8,000 for help. Donmez accepted $5,000. With the help of brother-in-law - a resident of Shamkir region Raman Akparov, Donmez delivered Arabul and Altynparmak in Shamkir on May 24. Akparov was promised $3,000 for assistance.
Arabul lived in Shamkir and Gazakh regions under a false name, painted hair and wore fisher's clothes. Akbar instructed his friend Mahir Latifov to help Arabul to cross the border illegally.
On May 29, Latifov delivered Arabul and Altynparmak to Gazakh region and placed them at the Goyazan Hotel. After detention by Georgian border guards Arabul admitted that he illegally crossed the border and offered them $30,000 for his release.
As a result of investigative activities Latifov and Akbar were arrested on June 9.
