Today (April 24) in the Yasamal District Court, under the chairmanship of Judge Ragib Gurbanov, a hearing on Azerbaijan Publishing House Major Editor Ilham Sadigov’s lawsuit against “Azadilg” Newspaper and newspaper reader/freelance writer Elmira Tofiggizi was held.

The plaintiff Ilham Sadigov and defense lawyer Elchin Sadigov participated in the hearing.  

Although the plaintiff protested, the judge adopted a decision to send the article submitted to the court as evidence for linguistic examination. Then the judge declared that the hearing will continue after results from the examination are obtained.
Recall that I. Sadigov filed a lawsuit over a critical article published in “Azadlig” Newspaper and written by Elmira Tofiggizi about a publication about “Koroglu” that the Publishing House’s Major Editor wrote. I. Sadigov is seeking the institution of separate 20,000 AZN fines against both Tofiggizi and “Azadlig” Newspaper.
