Nemat Panahli and Jeyhun Farzaliyev refused to testify in protest against the lack of media presence.
The next hearing will be held on 17 May.
Nemat Panahli and Farzaliyev were arrested on a charge brought by Eldar Rzayev, for hooliganism committed with a weapon. The Baku Appeals Court upheld the charge. If he is found guilty, Panahli could face 5 years in prison.
Panahli’s supporters claim that the real reason for his arrest is his journalistic activity. Prior to his arrest, he wrote a number of articles criticizing the government, published in various press outlets, including the Nota PS.
