The Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety was told by F.Novruzoglu that the judge issued a decision to fine him in the amount of 500 AZN.
“I don’t know H.Abdullayeva and have not written anything about her,” said Novruzoglu. “However, she claims that I have written about her in my article entitled “Why is Rauf Arifoglu whining” two months earlier. This lawsuit and verdict are ordered by the National Security Ministry’s Anti-terror Center.”
Novruzoglu added that he will file an appeal against this decision.
