Rally in Support of Azerbaijani Political Prisoners in Ukraine
In the course of opening a representative office of the Norwegian Foundation Human Rights House in Chernigov, Ukraine yesterday, a rally of solidarity with the Azerbaijani human rights activists was held.
In the hall were hung T-shirts with images of Intigam Aliyev, Rasul Jafarov, Anar Mammadli and Leyla Yunus.
In addition, a photo of the local human rights defender Malahat Nasibova was set on the stand dedicated to human rights violations in Nakhchivan.
Today, the Norwegian Foundation Human Rights House held a protest in front of the Azerbaijani Embassy in Kiev. The participants were holding portraits of Azerbaijani political prisoners, and some of them were wearing T-shirts with images of political prisoners.
In Azerbaijan, Human Rights House was opened in 2009, but two years later, the authorities closed the office and canceled the registration of the entity.
