“Azadlig” newspaper employee Agil Khalil was at the Chief prosecutor’s office with his defense lawyer Elchin Sadigov today.

Khalil was interrogated there and was examined by medical experts in connection with journalist’s claims that he was tortured and beaten. Lawyer Elchin Sadigov told this to the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety, noting that such actions are in connection with the complaint the Sadigov and his client have filed against the investigation. 
Recall that Khalil reported being beaten while making statements to the investigation about his 13 March stabbing. He filed a complaint about this in the Chief Prosecutor’s Office.
