IRFS employees summoned for questioning

In the morning of August 14 an employee of the Institute for Reporters Freedom and Safety (IRFS) Gunay Ismailova and the owner of the premises, which is leased by the NGO, Shargiyya Huseynova were summoned to the Main Investigation Department for Serious Crimes of the Prosecutor General's Office to testify.

As Ismailova told Turan, she was invited as a witness, although no notification was sent to her. Along with her, the lawyer Yalcin Imanov went for the questioning.

The owner of the premises, in turn, told Turan that she was simply invited. "I leased my apartment out in accordance with the law. There is a contract and the taxes paid. At the moment the door of my apartment is sealed by the investigation. The reason is unknown to me," Huseynova said.

On August 8 the Prosecutor General’s Office raided the IRFS office and seized 15 computers, 3 video cameras, 7 laptops, 12 photo cameras, up to 200 discs, more than 20 hard drives, security camera cards, grant agreements, accounting records, and seals.

The house of the parents of the IRFS Director Emin Huseynov was searched and a computer of his mother, a tablet and a few documents were seized.

On August 10 the prosecutors sealed the IRFS office.
