CHIEF EDITOR NOT SATISFIED WITH PROGRESS IN INVESTIGATION

February 19th, 2008
“Bizim Yol” Newspaper Chief Editor Bahaddin Haziyev appealed to Minister of Interior Ramil Usubov and Chief Prosecutor Zakir Garalov yesterday about the progress into the investigation into the attack on him on the night of 18 May 2006. In the appeal, Haziyev expressed his dissatisfaction with the investigation.

Haziyev told the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety that although he has appealed to these officials several times, no new information has been gathered about the attack.  
Recall that on the night of 18 May 2006 Bahaddin Haziyev was kidnapped, beaten and subjected to torture. In connection with this the Absherron District Police Department opened a criminal case in connection with article 127 of the Criminal Code (intentional infliction of serious bodily harm), however the case remains unsolved.
