Today is the second day after the publication in the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet a sensational material on preparing killing by Anar Mammadov, son of the Transport Minister of Azerbaijan. However, until now neither minister Ziya Mammadov, nor his son has made a refutation.
Only a lawyer of Anar Mammadov rejected the accusations against Anar.
Hurriyet newspaper refers to the investigation materials of the lawsuit in Turkey, on the attempt of assassination of former guard of Anar Mammadov.
The arrested for attempted murder said at the investigation that the murder was ordered by Anar Mammadov, who was to pay for it $500,000. It is argued that the reason for the ordered murder became the owning part of Mammadov’s income by his security chief; and therefore, there was an attempt to eliminate security chief to his subordinates.
The incident took place in May 2013 in Antalya, where according to Hurriyet, is Mammadovs mansion.
The name of the minister’s son repeatedly appeared in various scandalous stories. However, this did not prevent him to lead the pro-government organization “Society of Azerbaijani-American friendship”, to carry out various activities in the United States, and be engaged in lobbying activities.
