The petition regarding the replacement of the pretrial detention measure selected for Bakhtiyar Hajiyev with house arrest was considered.

APA informs that at the session held in the Khatai District Court, the defense side justified their objections to the continuation of the accused's arrest.

The investigator demanded that the petition be denied.

Judge Bakhtiyar Mammadov announced the decision after listening to the speeches of the parties.

Noting that the grounds for changing the selected preventive measure were not determined in the decision, the petition was rejected.

It should be noted that articles 221.2.2 of the Criminal Code (hooliganism by resisting a representative of the authorities or another person performing the duty of protecting public order or preventing the violation of public order) and 289.1 (contempt of court) of the Criminal Code have been charged against Bakhtiyar Hajiyev.

According to the decision of the Khatai District Court, Bakhtiyar Hajiyev was placed under preventive detention.
