Today a court hearing scheduled to take place in the Nasimi District Court, under the chairmanship of Judge Mammed Mammedov, on ANS Press' Publishing House's lawsuit against "Azadlig Fadaileri" Newspaper was postponed.
This occurred, because the no one from the defense came to the court.
The next hearing on this case is now scheduled to take place on 29 March at still to be determined time.
Recall that, ANS filed a lawsuit against "Azadlig Fedaileri" Newspaper and correspondent Nebi Allahverdi, due to an article that was run in the 28 November-01 December 2007 edition of the newspaper. According to ANS' legal representation, the article, entitled "The pornography of ANS," with the subtitle "ANS is in everywhere-impoliteness," doesn't correspond to the truth, and involves false, humiliating and insulting information. ANS is seeking to have a refutation published, and also wants a 50,000 AZN fine instituted against Allahverdi and a 10,000 AZN a fine instituted against "Azadlig Fedaileri."
