Three Persons Involved in "Ganja Case" Released Ahead of Schedule

Baku / 02.04.20 / Turan: Three persons involved in the "Ganja case" - Aydin Rustamov, Isa Maharramzadeh and Huseyn Bayramov were released from prison on April 1 ahead of schedule. Turan was reported by their relatives. All three had three months to finish their prison terms.

At a court session in the prison, a decision was made to release them as part of measures for the early release of convicts before the end of the sentence.

Recall that at the end of March, 200 people were released from prisons from this category of prisoners. Rustamov, Maharramzadeh and Bayramov were recognized by local human rights activists as political prisoners.

* On July 3, 2018 in Ganja an attempt was made on the then head executive of the city Elmar Veliyev. A Ganja native Yunis Safarov wounded him and his bodyguard.

After that, a protest rally in front of the Ganja administration building was scheduled for July 10. On that day, riots broke out in the city, during which two police officers were killed. Following this, mass arrests of believers and others began.

In these events, criminal proceedings were instituted against 70 people. The defendants were sentenced to imprisonment from 6 to 18 years. About 10 people were conditionally released. Cases of two groups of those arrested are pending before the court of appeal. The trial on Safarov and 11 others began in January. — 21C-
