Testimony was given by the representative of the Ministry of Taxes, who also answered questions from the accused. Zeynalli again rejected accusations of tax evasion.

The lawyer Elchin Sadygov again petitioned to change the measure of restraint on house arrest, but the judge again rejected his petition. 

Zeynalli himself said that every page of  the four-volume case was  falsified.

When the judge announced the list of evidences, the  lawyer Sadigov said that audio recordings, presented by MP Gular Ahmedova was falsified  by investigation. The judge announced the completion of the trial.  The state prosecutor Ramazan  Hadiyev  will be given floor on February 13. 

The trial in the  case of Zeynalli has been lasting since May 2012; he was arrested on October 28, 2011 on the complaint of the deputy Gular Ahmedova of extortion.
