Today, 6 April, Radio Liberty Baku Service Head Khadija Ismayilova was called to the National Security Ministry of Azerbaijan, according to Turan Information Agency.

K.Ismayilova told Turan that she was interrogated regarding imprisoned Editor-in-chief of Gundalik Azerbaijan and Realniy Azerbaijan Newspapers E.Fatullayev’s statements concerning the murder of Monitor Journal Editor-in-chief Elmar Huseynov while she and her lawyer Aslan Ismayilov were at the NSM.
A month ago Eynulla Fatullayev stated that high rank NSM officials have contributed to the murder of slain Monitor Journal Editor-in-chief Elmar Huseynov. Yeni Musavat Newspaper Editor-in-chief Rauf Arifoglu, Turan Information Agency Director Mehman Aliyev, Adalat (Justice) Party Deputy Chairperson, journalist Elkhan Shukurlu, Azadlig Newspaper Director Azer Ahmadov and Milletim Newspaper Editor-in-chief Faramaz Novruzoglu also were summoned to the NSM to make statements regarding the statements of Eynulla Fatullayev. In addition, Fatullayev’s lawyer Elchin Sadigov was called to the NSM. However, Sadigov refused to make a statement as it is against the law to interrogate lawyers for their professional work.
