Today, 15 April, in the Yasamal District Court, under the chairmanship of Svetlana Ahmedova, a hearing was scheduled to take place on the lawsuit of "Haji Mazan" LTD's Founder Ramazan Zeynalov to defend his honor and dignity against "Gundalik Baki" Newspaper's Founder and Editor-in-Chief Habil Valiyev.

The hearing was postponed until 17 April at 5:00 p.m. because defendant’s lawyer Zaur Ibadov did not come to the hearing.
This lawsuit stems from articles "Narcotics Itinerary in the South" published in the newspaper on 14 January 2009 and "Narcotics Itinerary in the South – 2" published in the newspaper on 22 January, 2009. The plaintiff is seeking the publication of a refutation, an apology from the newspaper, and 1 million AZN from Editor-in-Chief Habil Valiyev for the company in compensation for moral damages.
