IRFS believes that the decision of the European Court of Human Rights is fair and proves once again that the decisions of Azerbaijani courts against Fatullayev were politically motivated.
IRFS recalls that although Fatullayev was recognized as a prisoner of conscience by the local and international communities, he has been imprisoned for more than three years now. Another example of the Azerbaijani government’s intolerance is the imprisonment of bloggers Emin Abdullayev (Milli) and Adnan Hajizade, who are also the prisoners of conscience, under politically motivated charges.
IRFS calls on Azerbaijani government to fulfill the decision of the European Court of Human Rights and to immediately free Fatullayev. In light of this decision, IRFS calls on the Azerbaijani government to immediately free Emin Abdullayev (Milli) and Adnan Hajizade.
