Between 20 and 40 people were detained in Baku on Saturday when police dispersed an opposition rally in Azerbaijan’s capital calling for the dissolution of parliament.

Police moved in to break up the rally, organized by the youth wings of the Musavat and the Popular Front opposition parties, after issuing a warning that it was unauthorized.

The protests are linked to a video released in late September, purportedly showing a ruling-party MP offering a seat in parliament in return for a $1 million bribe.

The Baku City Prosecutor’s Office has launched criminal proceedings into the case on “fraud” charges.
