April 23rd, 2008
Today (23 April) a hearing was supposed to take place in the Baku Appellate Court under the chairmanship of judge Rashadat Agayev on the appeal filed against the decision adopted by the lower first instance court on “Gundalik Azerbaijan” Newspaper’s lawsuit against ANS Independent Broadcasting and Media Company.

The hearing was postponed until 14 May at 11:00 a.m. because no representative from the newspaper came to court.  “Gundalik Azerbaijan” Newspaper editor Shahvalad Chobanoglu told the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety that they weren’t informed about this hearing or the motive of the case.
