Statement in regards to the abduction and arrest of Azerbaijani journalist Afgan Mukhtarli

The "Alliance of Patriots of Georgia" is deeply concerned about the abduction of Azerbaijani journalist Afgan Mukhtarli and his subsequent arrest in Azerbaijan.

We urge the government of Georgia to begin an immediate and full investigation of this case and ensure that this investigation is transparent and conducted as quickly as possible.

We strongly believe that all the persons, involved in this criminal and human rights violating act, must be punished under the Law, despite their political status or position.
