August 8, 2014

On June 30, 2014 me and my husband Arif were accused in committing number of grave crimes, including treason with falsified charges.  Then I was placed into the detention facility in Kurdakhani.

On August 5 they have arrested Arif and brought him to Kurdakhani detention facility.

On August 7, he was taken to the Ministry of National Security’s detention place.

I have been dealing with the political prisoners issue and am very well aware of tortures applied by the MNS.

I perfectly understand the intention to physically destroy my family - Arif and myself.

In 2005 right after the murder of Elmar Huseynov, I was warned that my assassination is also planned. Of course, I was afraid. Evidently, the decision to kill me was cancelled as we made this information public .

 But the bloody tyranny does not have any limitations in 2014. I realize that Arif and I will be tortured brutally and to death. ...

Dear supporters, talk about this, Speak UP!

Raise your voice, make yourself heard. Let them hear and know what kind of bloody tyranny is running Azerbaijan-the country chairing the Council of Europe.

Leyla Yunus.


Note from the COmmittee for Defense of Leyla Yunus's rights: Since arrest of Arif Yunus, the only immediate relative of Leyla Yunus in Baku, friends of Yunusovs applied to prosecutor's office to grant them permission to deliver food and medicines to the inmates. Ibrahim Lemberanski, the investigator of the chief prosecutor's office delays the permission. Leyla Yunus has severe form of diabetes and depends on the medicines, which she has already ran out. If the medicines will not be delivered, her health will be deteriorated.
