Natig Jabbarli, an inmate serving his sentence in Prison No.13, has been subjected to physical and psychological torture by the deputy chief of the prison Elchin Alijanov for the past 2 months, inmate’s father Vagif Jabbarov said on December 20.

According to him, Natig Jabbarli has been repeatedly beaten by deputy chief Elchin Alijanov and placed in the sweatbox. “Last time, when subjected to more brutal tortures by the deputy chief, my son attempted to take his own life. Natig is in a very serious condition right now. He has been moved to the Penitentiary Service’s Treatment Facility in Baku,” Vagif Jabbarov said.
