Ali Aliyev may face a new term of imprisonment

The leader of the Citizens and Development Party, Ali Aliyev, who is serving a prison sentence on the basis of two sentences, faces another term on the complaint of Ramiz Geyushev, a former member of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party. On May 27, the Yasamal District Court considered the complaint of the former head of the Binagadi district branch of Yeni Azerbaijan Geyushev.

He claims that Ali Aliyev insulted him in a Boomerang TV video interview in September 2021, where he called him a “hare”, “fraer” and “masturbation”.

Geyushev demands to punish Aliyev under the Article  148 (insult) of the Criminal Code, which provides for imprisonment of up to 6 months.

During the trial, lawyer Togrul Babayev pointed out that the private complaint was not only unsubstantiated, but also prepared in violation of the law. Thus, the statement does not specify the exact date of the video interview and does not specify the allegedly offensive quotes.

Aliyev himself stated that this complaint is an order to extend his prison term. He noted that he would not let go of his political struggle. “It is a pity that such persons are used to put pressure on me. Shameful…” Aliyev said. Geyushev also participated in the  trial and began to insist that Aliyev insulted him.

In September 2021, footage of Geyushev watching porn appeared on the Internet. The journalist who distributed these footage was arrested, and Geyushev was expelled from the party.

* Ali Aliyev was sentenced on January 13 of this year to 5 months in prison on charges of libel (Article 147.1 of the Criminal Code) based on a complaint from an officer of the State Border Service (SBS) Emil Jafarov.

On April 15, the court extended the sentence by another month, also upholding the complaint against Aliyev by another officer of the State Border Service, Ramin Adilov.

The reason for the lawsuits was the statement by Ali Aliyev in the press that the said officers could not survive the crash of the MI-17 State Border Service helicopter on November 30, 2021 and that the helicopter could have been shot down by the Russian side. In the crash of the State Border Service helicopter in November last year, 14 officers of this department were killed, and two survived.

Ali Aliyev rejected both verdicts, calling his arrest “a political order from the country’s leadership.”
