Today, 18 November, in the Baku Appellate Court, under the chairmanship of judge Ilgar Dadashov
a hearing was held on the lawsuit of lawyer Elchin Sadigov he filed against the decision of Nasimi District Court on his lawsuit against the Justice Ministry Penitentiary services for not creating conditions to visit imprisoned “Azadlig” Newspaper Editor-in-chief Ganimat Zahid. The judge did not fulfill the lawsuit and upheld the decision of the Nasimi District Court.
Sadigov signed a contract with Ganimat’s wife Ayanda Mursaliyeva to defend the rights of the editor-in-chief. However, the Nasimi District Court considers that the Penitentiary Services made a right choice not to grant a meeting to Zahid stating that the contract was not signed by Zahid directly.
