Police violence against journalists at the trial in the case of NIDA VIDEO (UPDATED)

An employee of TV Meydan, Aynura Heydarova, was subjected to pressure from the police on Tuesday in the building of the Baku Court of Grave Crimes where a trial began of seven members of civil society movement NIDA, and the organization "Azad Ganjlik."

The police refused to let journalists into the hall, who were demanding their right to report the trial. However, the police rudely pushed out of the room several press officers, including Heydarova. "They pushed me out when I demanded them to let me into to the hall. Before that, it was announced that the trial would be an open one. If so, then why are journalists evicted?" said Heydarova.

According to Turan correspondent, the majority of those wishing to enter the courtroom , could not get in because of the small size of the room.
