Yasamal District Court Judge Khagani Tagiyev issued a verdict to sentence Eyyub Karimov to 1.5 years corrective labor. E.Karimov has to pay 15% of his salary to the government.
IRFS recalls that several journalists in Azerbaijan have been sentenced to conditional imprisonment for their articles. All these cases contributed to the worsening of the situation of freedom of speech and press.
IRFS calls on Azerbaijan’s government to annul the verdict issued against Eyyub Karimov, to end persecution against journalists for their professional work, release all imprisoned journalists, and decriminalize defamation.
