April 9th, 2008

Yesterday evening imprisoned “Bizim Yol” Newspaper employee Mushfig Huseynov was transferred to Prison #2 in Bina village.

The journalist’s relative Tahmasib Huseynov told this to the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety, “I went to the prison to see Mushfig Huseynov, but it was impossible. The mandatory 15 day quarantine was cited as the reason for this.” 
IRFS contacted Prison #2. The inspector of the Special Department confirmed that Huseynov was brought to that prison. Deputy Chief Shakir Bayramov stated, “M. Huseynov stopped the hunger-strike. Since yesterday he has been drinking water and eating food.”
