According to Novruzoglu, court hearings have been conducted on this case for two months in the Binagadi District Court, under the chairmanship of Judge Maarif Kazimov. Novruzoglu learned about these from reports in newspapers. He was not sent any statement or invitation by the court.
Novruzoglu thinks that a high-ranked law enforcement organ employee stands behind this case. “The National Security Ministry Department to Fight against Terrorism, concretely deputy minister Hilal Asadov stands behind this case,” he said. “For a while now that my series of articles under the title ‘Azerbaijan on the table of wolves’ are published in ‘Nota’ Newspaper. I have been warned repeatedly to stop these articles. And I was threatened that I would be arrested after the presidential elections. This lawsuit was submitted to the court on 16 October, 2008 – one day after the elections.”
Tomorrow (16 December) at 4:00 pm, a hearing will be conducted on this case in the Binagadi District Court, under the chairmanship of Judge M. Kazimov.
