 “Azerbaijan National Statehood Party Head Nemat Panahli’s life is endangered. A person that is in prison under murder charge was transferred to his cell.

BACKGROUND
On January 8, 2011, Azerbaijan National Statehood Party Head Nemat Panahli and his friend Jeyhun Farzullayev were detained after a police complaint filed by citizen Eldar Rzayev. On January 10, the Nasimi District Court sentenced Panahli and Farzullayev to 2 months of pre-trial detention, charging them under Article 221.3 of the Criminal Code. The complaint stemmed from a dispute that broke out with regard to a car sold to Rzayev by Panahli. On January 17, Baku Appeals court upheld the decision. On June 17, Nasimi District Court sentenced Panahli to 6 years, and Farzullayev 4 years in jail.
Panahli’s supporters believe that the arrests are linked to articles published in P.S.Nota newspaper that were critical of the ruling authorities.
