The lawyers ask the court to acquit NIDA activist
Today at the trial in the Baku Serious Crimes Court in the case of the activist NİDA Elgiz Gahraman accused of drug trafficking, spoke lawyers Fariz Namazly and Nemat Karimli.
They asked to justify activist whom the prosecutor offered to condemn to six years. According
to lawyer Fariz Namazly, the court failed to prove the guilt of Gahraman and confessions were broken by torture. Namazly noticed that the clothes of the suspect examination of drug trafficking by the decision of the Supreme Court was carried out only after the recognition of him that status. Gahraman also searched to recognize the suspect.
In addition, the investigation interrogated Gahraman about his links with Fethullah Gülen, however, the charges in this matter have not been presented. "We could not get an answer to the question why Gahraman questioned about links with Gülen?" said the lawyer. The activist himself was not ready for action, because today in jail he took away the written notes. The court ordered his speech for 16 January.
According to supporters of Gahraman, the true reason for his arrest was the ironic post on Facebook, where he commented ironically comparing Ilham Aliyev's son with Shah Ismail. -06B-
