EYNULLA FATULLAYEV HOPELESS ABOUT HIS RELEASE

May 26th, 2008

On 24 May imprisoned “Gundalik Azerbaijan” and “Realniy Azerbaijan” newspapers’ Editor-in-Chief Eynulla Fatullayev was visited by his parents in prison #12.

Emin Fatullayev, the journalist’s father, told this to the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety, and added that Fatullayev did not complain about the prison condition or his health. 
PACE Monitoring Committee co-rapporteurs on Azerbaijan Andreas Herkel and Yevgeniya Jivkova, who were in Azerbaijan last week, met with Fatullayev in the prison. Fatullayev talked about this to his parents. 
“After this meeting Eynulla doesn’t have any expectations that he will be pardoned and released,” said Emin Fatullayev.
