Khadija Ismayilova: Support the "Azadlig"!


The imprisoned investigative journalist Khadija Ismailova appealed to the public in connection with the threat of closure of the newspaper "Azadlig" because the publisher debts.  The statement by the journalist was  posted on her page in  Facebook.

"The newspaper "Azadlig" is my only source of information in  jail. I need it as  air and water. I hope that  its issue will not stop.  Let's help  it and do our best,"  reads a statement  by Ismayilova.

The Publishing house "Azerbaijan" threatens to stop the publication of the newspaper "Azadlig" because of debts. In turn, the editors cannot get  kits money from the state printing firm-distributor "Gasid".

Khadija Ismayilova was arrested in December 2014,  and subsequently sentenced to 7.5 years in prison on charges of economic crimes. However, the journalist  has been recognized as a political prisoner.  She is being persecuted because of corruption investigations in the higher echelons of power in Azerbaijan.
