A court hearing on the lawsuit of “Azadlig” newspaper journalist Agil Khalil’s defense lawyer Elchin Sadigov against Ali Guliyev

Chief Investigator of the Investigation Department of Chief Prosecutor’s Office, which was scheduled to take place Today (19 May) in Nasimi District Court under the chairmanship of Judge Shahin Aliyev was postponed. The hearing was postponed because the Guliyev did not submit case materials to the court.

Recall that Agil Khalil’s defense lawyer Elchin Sadigov filed a lawsuit against Chief Investigator Ali Guliyev because he and “Azadlig” newspaper journalist Agil Khalil were held in the investigation Department for more than 12 hours and were subjected to pressure.
