The court left Bakhtiyar Hajiyev in custody

Baku/19.05.23/Turan: On May 19, the Khatai District Court of Baku dismissed the petition to transfer public activist Bakhtiyar Hajiyev to house arrest. This was reported to Turan by his lawyer Rovshana Rahimli.
According to her, Hajiyev himself participated in the process and spoke in his defense.

“The psychological state of Bakhtiyar Hajiyev is very tense. He had panic attacks. Despite receiving drug therapy, the treatment does not give effective results. Bakhtiyar Hajiyev's condition continues to be tense,” the lawyer said.
She noted that an appeal would be filed against the decision of the Khatai court.

*Bakhtiar Hajiyev was arrested on December 9 last year on charges of hooliganism and contempt of court. On the same day, the Khatai District Court sentenced him to 1 month and 20 days in prison.

On December 15, Hajiyev went on a hunger strike demanding his release. He stopped his hunger strike on December 28 after persistent calls from members of the public and family members. But on January 9, after the Court of Appeal refused to release him from prison, he resumed his hunger strike.

On January 21, the court extended Hajiyev's detention for another month, and on February 23, it was extended for another two months - on April 28.

The repeated petitions of lawyers to change the preventive measure chosen for Hajiyev to house arrest or release him on bail before the start of the trial were not satisfied by the courts.

On February 28 - on the 51st day of the hunger strike, Hajiyev stopped his hunger strike.

Representatives of the US State Department, the US Senate, the European Union, the Council of Europe and a number of international NGOs have repeatedly demanded Hajiyev's release from prison. ---B06---
