“I should issue a decision to transfer Bakhtiyar Hajiyev to Baku Investigate Prison in order to ensure his participation in this hearing. However, I am not entitled to pass such a decision,” said the Judge.
The lawyer informed that the hearing was postponed to 3 pm, July15th, 2011.
Criminal case against Bakhtiyar Hajiyev was launched in the end of January, 2011. At that time, he signed a statement of commitment not to leave Ganja city. In the end of February his pre-trial detention was replaced with release under police control. Ganja City Court sentenced youth activist Bakhtiyar Hajiyev to 2 years in jail on May 18, 2011, charging him with dodging military service.
It is widely thought that Hajiyev was arrested for his activity on social networking sites and his support of the March 11 Great People’s Day campaign.
