Aziz Orujov Remains in Detention

June 17th, 2017

Nasimi District Court, chaired by Judge Babak Panahov, considered the motion to replace the pre-trial detention measure ordered for Head of Kanal 13, Aziz Orujov, with house arrest. The court denied the motion. According to lawyer Javad Javadov, Aziz Orujov himself participated in the hearing and called his arrest illegal. The lawyer added that he would apply to the European Court unless the truth triumphed in local investigative and judicial authorities.
