The appeal of the Barmek- Azerbaijan vice president, Omar Gunel to change the court `s decision on keeping him in custody was rejected, the presiding judge Alim Namazov told Trend.
Omar Gunel appeal to change the measure into the home arrest. However, the judge, considering the fact the suspect can evade the court in future did not change the current verdict.
Gunel is accused by the article 179 of the Azerbaijan Republic Criminal codex i.e. embezzlement and appropriation of the state property.
