According to him, the journalist has developed serious health problems after being tortured on 22 September .
“Under the guidance of Deputy Chief of Prison #9 Azer Bagirzade, they cuffed his arms, put him in chains and beat him until he fainted. Then they would pour a bucket of cold water over the jailed journalist to wake him up to beat him again. As a result of the beating, Javid’s internal organs were injured, his nasal septum was fractured and he suffered blood haemorrhage in the eyes. Deputy Chief of Prison #9 Azer Bagirzade told him openly that ‘your blood is halal for us (i.e. shedding your blood is halal [permissible] for us), and even if we kill you, we won’t be rebuked by our superiors’. Javid Shiraliyev is currently in the Treatment Facility,” Gulaliyev added.
