AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL BEGINS SUPPORT ACTION FOR BLOGGERS

November 17th, 2009
Amnesty International disseminated an appeal to take emergency measures regarding the arrest of young bloggers Emin Milli and Adnan Hadjizade. It is stated in the appeal that the trial of the bloggers was unfair and they were arrested on trumped-up charges. Amnesty International, which recognized the bloggers as prisoners of conscience, appealed to everyone and called on them to write an appeal in Azerbaijani and English languages demanding for their immediate release and send it to the president of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, Justice Minister Fikret Mammadov and Ombudsman Elmira Suleymanova.
