Lawyers Elchin Aliyev and Sadig Bagirov declared that the charges against Panahli and his friend were unfounded, and that the decisions by the court of first instance and the appeals court were unfair, based on the unreliable testimony of a single witness. Both lawyers requested the court to acquit their clients.
The public prosecutor asked the court to uphold the decision by the appeals court, arguing that the cassation appeal is unfounded. The Judge denied the appeal.
