The Supreme Court will consider the complaint of Khadija Ismaylova
The Azerbaijani Supreme Court accepted a cassation appeal against investigative journalist Khadija Ismayilova against the sentence on her imprisonment for 7.5 years.
According to her lawyer Yalcin Imanov, the complaint will be considered by judges chaired by Ali Seyfaliev. The date of the meeting has not been determined yet. Ismayilova was arrested on December 5, 2014, and was subsequently sentenced to 7.5 years of imprisonment on charges of economic crimes.
The real reason for her arrest is an investigation of corruption in the higher echelons of power.
"Amnesty International" called her a "a prisoner of conscience.”
