Today, 11 June, a hearing on "Nota" Newspaper Editor-in-chief Sardar Alibayli’s lawsuit against Minister of Education Misir Mardanov, under chairmanship of Judge Ramil Kazimov in Narmanov District Court was postponed. The Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety was told this by Sardar Alibeyli.
According to Alibeyli, the process has been rescheduled for 16 June at 5:00 p.m.
This lawsuit stems from an information request sent by Nota Newspaper to the Education Ministry in connection with an article the newspaper published. The request was not answered by the ministry. As a result of the article published in Nota Newspaper, this newspaper was included in the Press Council’s list of racketeering newspapers.
