In the Baku Court of Grave Crimes at the trial of ex-deputy Guler Ahmedova, the defendant made a closing statement on December 2.

She appealed from the courtroom to President Ilham Aliyev, pleading for clemency, given the presence of a small child and a sick person in her family, and her health status.

Ahmedova also stated that she is the same as Aliyev knows her, and she has always supported the right course of Heydar Aliyev.

In her opinion, "time is needed to identify certain truths."

The sentencing is scheduled today at 15.00.

Earlier, the prosecutor asked the court to sentence Ahmedova to 4 years of imprisonment.

Recall that Ahmedova is accused of fraud and embezzlement in a large scale and harboring serious crime. The articles on both crimes presume imprisonment for up to 12 years with confiscation of property.

The reason for her arrest was a video released by the former Rector of the International University Elshad Abdullayev. On these shots taken with a hidden camera, it is possible to see how Ahmedova and her accomplice Babayeva extort $ 1 million from Abdullayev for his election as MP. -06D -
