Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 19
By Samir Ali - Trend:
Baku's Narimanov District Court reviewed on Jan. 19 a lawsuit by the former chairman of the International Bank of Azerbaijan, Jahangir Hajiyev, who is under arrest.
The lawsuit concerned his detention in the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime, Hajiyev's lawyer Agil Layijev told Trend.
Jahangir Hajiyev's lawsuit wasn't granted at the trial chaired by Judge Turgay Huseynov.
Having reviewed the lawsuit, the judge considered it appropriate to leave Hajiyev in the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime in connection with the investigation.
Hajiyev was taken from a detention facility to the Interior Ministry's Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime on Dec. 30 in connection with investigative actions.
He is currently in the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime.
Hajiyev is charged under various articles of the Criminal Code, including misappropriation, abuse of office, fraud by causing huge damage, embezzlement through the abuse of office, and bribing.
Earlier, according to a decision of the Narimanov Court, a preventive measure in the form of arrest for a period of four months was chosen against him.
