Trial in the case of Giyas Ibrahimov and his father

Baku / 18.10.17 / Turan: The criminal case against Giyas Ibrahimov and his father Hasan Ibrahimov, accused of not respecting the judge, will be considered in the Yasamal district court, lawyer Elchin Sadigov said. The preparatory hearing is scheduled for 11.30 on October 31.

On September 27, in the Investigation Department of the Ministry of Justice, youth activist Giyas Ibrahimov and his father Hasan Ibrahimov were charged under Article 289.2 (not respect for the judge) of the Criminal Code.

The criminal case was initiated in connection with the incident that occurred on June 5 this year in the Baku Court of Appeal. Giyas Ibrahimov, during the state prosecutor's speech, repeatedly pointed to Judge Vugar Mamedov with his hands that he could not hear anything in a glass cage. However, the judge did not pay attention to this. Giyas, in protest, took off the microphone that was in the cage. Judicial warders entered the cage and tied Ibrahimov's hands in handcuffs. It seems that this was done rudely, as the traces of the defendant's blood were visible on the bench. At this time his father Hasan Ibrahimov, who was in the hall, expressed his dissatisfaction and turning to the judges said that the day would come, "the same will happen to your children."

* Article 289.2 (not respect for the judge) of the Criminal Code of Azerbaijan provides for punishment in the form of a fine from 300 to 500 manat (from 180 to 300 dollars), or correctional labor up to 2 years, or imprisonment for six months.

** On May 10, 2016, the members of the NİDA Movement Giyas Ibrahimov and Bayram Mammadov were arrested after writing political slogans on the monument to Heydar Aliyev. However, they were accused of a crime connected with drug trafficking and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.

Amnesty International has declared both "prisoners of conscience" because it believes that the accusation against them is fabricated.

Representatives of the authorities do not consider them political prisoners, stating that they are punished "for a specific criminal act." - 05B06-
