Today, 9 September, in the Baku Appellate Court, under the chairmanship of Judge Hilal Khalilov, a hearing scheduled to take place on the appeal of “Korrupsiya ve Jamiyyat” Journal`s Editor-in-chief Mammad Ahmedoglu against the verdict of the Binagadi District Court adopted on his lawsuit against the Press Council and the Council’s Deputy Chairman was postponed.
Plaintiff Mammad Ahmedoglu, representatives on behalf of defendant Rahim Huseynzade and Mushfig Alasgarli participated in the hearing. The Judge rescheduled the hearing for 16 September at 3:00 p.m. stating that the defendants’ warrants of attorney were not composed correctly.
M.Ahmedoglu filed a lawsuit against the Press Council demanding that the council issue a refutation and apologize for including “Korrupsiya ve Jamiyyat” on the list of racketeering press, and every defendant pay 4000 (four thousand) AZN for moral damages. On 30 June 2009 Binagadi District Court issued a decision not to fulfill the lawsuit.
