Azerbaijan remains a deeply authoritarian state, and 2017 saw further aggressive steps from the executive to eliminate all criticism and dissent against a backdrop of mounting economic crisis.

Following a well-established pattern from 2013 to 2015, in 2016/2017  Azerbaijani authorities used a range of false, politically motivated criminal charges, including drug possession and illegal business activity to arrest at least 20 political and youth activists. Those detained have often been subject to ill-treatment including torture.
