EDITOR-IN-CHIEF ALLEGEDLY THREATENED

September 23rd, 2009
Today, 23 September, “Korrupsiya ve Jamiyyet” Journal’s Editor-in-chief Mammad Ahmadoglu has allegedly received a threatening phone call. M.Ahmadoglu told the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety that the call came from Shaki City resident Mammadov Kazim Adishirin oglu.   

“I have sent an information inquiry to the Republic Military Commissariat about Mammadov’s son, who works as the Department Head at the Shaki city Executive Administration, to learn the reason why he did not serve in the military for real. Mammadov found out about it and told me that he would follow my family,” said M.Ahmadoglu who added that he will appeal to law-enforcement organs regarding this matter.
Ahmadoglu emphasized that the responsibility lies upon this person if anything happens to him or his family.
IRFS called Mammadov several times to learn his position on this issue, but he did not respond.
