November 29th, 2010
On November 26, Bizim yol newspaper employee Ramid Ibrahimov was physically assaulted by a person named Isa, who introduced himself as Baku City Executive Office (BCEO) official, reported Ibrahimov.

According to him, the BCEO official attacked him and tried to seize his camera while he was taking photos on  73 A. Tobpcubasov street, where a building was being demolished to make room for the “Winter Park” project.
“I told him that I was a journalist and that I wasn’t doing anything illegal. He began to insult me and even damaged my camera. However, the photos are safe. Then they called the police in to drive me out from the area- no police had been there before.”
