Anar Mammadli needs medical examination

Anar Mammadli, the head of the Center for Election Monitoring and Democracy Education, held in Baku pretrial detention center-1, has serious health problems and needs a medical examination. Lawyer Elchin Sadigov told Turan after meeting Mammadli in the pretrial detention center.

Due to the need for medical examination, the lawyer applied to the Penitentiary Service of the Ministry of Justice, but has not received a reply yet.

Touching upon the issue of detention conditions, the lawyer noted that the detainees in the pretrial detention center suffer from heat in summer.

The lawyer also noted that no investigative actions are carried out with Mammadli after his arrest.

Representatives of the investigative body and the penitentiary service were unavailable for comment.

*Anar Mammadli was arrested on 30 April on charges of smuggling by conspiracy of a group of persons (Article 206.3.2 of the AR Criminal Code). Initially he was brought under the "Abzas Media case".

Subsequently, his case was separated into a separate proceeding.

Numerous international organisations and the US State Department called on the Azerbaijani government to immediately release Anar Mammadli and other imprisoned journalists and activists.

Over the past few months, criminal cases have been initiated against 17 activists and journalists, 15 of whom are in detention.
