“BAKU ZAMAN” NEWSPAPER EDITOR-IN-CHIEF SUES “YENI MUSAVAT”

May 6th, 2008
“Baku Zaman” newspaper editor-in-chief Elnur Maharramli plans to sue “Yeni Musavat” newspaper.

Maharramli told this to the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety.  “Acting in contradiction with the law about the mass media, they somehow managed to obtain the letter belonging to me from my email address and published it without my consent. Secondly, in the next edition of the newspaper they published an article to create the opinion that allegedly I sent this letter to ‘Yeni Musavat’ Newspaper to get revenge Rasul Guliyev,” he noted.  


“Yeni Musavat” newspaper assistant editor-in-chief Azer Aykhan said that they weren’t afraid of court trials. “They have right to appeal to the court,” he added.
