E. FATULLAYEV ONLY GIVEN PRO-GOVERNMENT NEWSPAPERS IN PRISON

February 25th, 2008
“Gundalik Azerbayjan” and “Realny Azerbayjan” Newspaper Chief Editor Eynulla Fatullayev’s father Emin Fatullayev visited his son in Prison #12 yesterday (24 February).

“Eynulla’s condition is normal,” Emin Fatullayev told the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety. “Simply they do not give him opposition newspapers. He can only read pro-government newspapers.”  
IRFS contact Fatullayev’s lawyer Isakhan Ashurov about this matter. Ashurov assessed allowing the journalist only to have pro-government newspapers as a violation of Fatullayev right to access to information.
