Guler Akhmedova is accused of murder
At today's hearing in the case of ex-MP Guler Akhmedova gave testimony the aunt and sister of the late Sevinc Babayeva, partner of Akhmedova extorting $1 million from Elshad Abdullayev, the Rector of the International University.
First, at the trial in Baku Serious Crimes Court, chaired by Alisultan Osmanov, the floor was given to Babayeva’s aunt, Zarifa Jabiyeva. She said that in the summer of 2012, when she was visiting her sister, her niece Sevinc Babayeva came and said that she was poisoned.
"We took her to several hospitals, but they did not accept her, because she did not look sick. Then she was accepted in "Semashko." But the next day Sevinc asked us to take her from there, because she was afraid of being killed. We took her and placed at the hospital of the Customs," said Jabiyeva .
According to her, on the eve of Sevinc Babaeva dined with Guler Akhedova at “Sultan” restaurant. Sevinc said she ate a chicken, and I felt that the meat was bitter," said the aunt of the deceased. She further said that after departure to Turkey Babayeva called her, and swore that she did not take a penny from the money transferred by Elshad.
Guler told her to be patient , because on her return to Azerbaijan, a “composer” will appoint her to new post ( under the composer she meant the Minister of Emergency Situations, Kamaladdin Heydarov.)
Akhmedova called it lies and added that she many times helped Sevinc Babayeva.
Then gave testimony S.Babayeva’s sister, Tarana Safarova. She stated that the doctor of the Customs Hospital, named Ghalib, told her that her sister had been poisoned, and will live only six months.
Sevinc was treated for some time and she felt better, but on September 26 she said that she could not stay in Baku, and had to fly to Turkey, said Safarova.
Safarova added that when she was visiting her sister in Turkey, Babayeva spoke with Akhmedova on Skype.
"Guler said: “Sevinj, I gave money to Ramiz Mehdiyev, and he spoke with the president at his dacha. The issue will be resolved." The next day, Sevinc felt worse, but she was not accepted to the Jarrahpasha Clinic because she did not have a passport. Guler said she had discussed her case with Kamaladdin," Safarova said.
However, the Gular Akhmedova called the testimonies of the witness a "lie", and claimed that they were learn by Abdullayev.
Turning to the defendant Safarova exclaimed : "You poisoned her, and you sent her to Turkey." The trial is ongoing. —16D—
