Nils Muiznieks condemns police raid to Azadlig radio office
Baku/27.12.14/Turan : The Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, Nils Muiznieks, following the raid of the Baku bureau of RFE/RL’s Azerbaijani Service, published comment on his Facebook account.
"It is with dismay that I see the office of the Baku bureau of RFE/RL’s Azerbaijani Service raided by the police. This unacceptable event adds to the many cases of repression of dissenting voices which have occurred in the near past in Azerbaijan and illustrates the seriousness of the challenges that journalists, human rights defenders and others expressing critical opinions face there. I urge the authorities to stop once and for all their crackdown on freedom of expression and media freedom and to do good on their human rights protection obligations."- reads the comment.
