Human Rights House Foundation calls to lift the travel ban for Mehman Huseynov

Baku/09.04.19/Turan: On Tuesday 9 April, Mehman Huseynov was prevented from travelling out of Azerbaijan, being stopped at the airport on the way to attend a conference at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg.

Following his release from prison on 2 March, Huseynov applied for a passport which he received on 4 April. However, it appears that on his first attempt to use it, the travel ban against him that was instated in 2012 is still in effect.

Mehman Huseynov"s legitimate work as a journalist and human rights defender, including travel to international fora, is invaluable to the society he lives in. We again ask the authorities to immediately reinstate his rights and lift the travel ban against him.
