Term of the arrest of editor is extended for three months

Nasimi District Court of Baku  extended for another three months the  term of the arrest of Nijat Aliyev, the editor of the website azadxeber.org, who was arrested in May of this year.

According to the journalist's lawyer, Anar Gasimli, extension  of the arrest is unfounded, as no investigation was conducted.
The lawyer said that charges of drug possession were also unfounded. According to him, the journalist denied the allegation, and said that he is being persecuted for his professional activities, such as publishing before the contest "Eurovision" the inadmissibility of the gay parade in Baku.
Guliyev was arrested on the evening of May 20 near the metro station “Memar Ajemi.”—06B-
