On the 13th anniversary of journalist Elmar Huseynov’s murder, IRFS urges Azerbaijan’s authorities to stop stalling and relaunch the investigation into his death.

On 2 March 2005, after receiving a number of death threats, Monitor magazine editor-in-chief Elmar Huseynov was gunned down in the stairwell of his apartment building in Baku, where he died on the scene. » » » »
