Another Teacher Dismissed for Political Views
Baku / 02.05.17 / Turan: Jalil Imanov, a teacher of the Iskeder rural school of the Masalli district, has been dismissed from his job. He believes this decision is politically motivated.
As reported by Imanov, the dismissal was explained with the fact that his appointment to work was allegedly illegal.
Imanov says that in 2013 he was sent to the school of the Luren village in the Masalli district by competitive selection. However, due to health problems, he asked the district education department to transfer him to the school in Iskeder at his place of residence.
In the activist’s opinion, the true reason for his dismissal is his membership in the Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan. In the district education department they said he was fired precisely ‘in connection with his illegal engagement, violation of labor discipline and not fulfilling his functions as a class teacher.’
Imanov became the third teacher and activist of PFPA, dismissed from his job in the past week. -06B-
