The blogger Rashad Ramazanov  was sentenced on a charge of

“drug trafficking”

Azerbaijan’s Supreme Court  rejected an appeal  of the blogger Rashad Agaadin (Rashad Ramazanov), sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment on charges of drug trafficking. 

According to  the blogger Azer Nagiyev, preliminary meeting of the Baku Court of Appeal on the claim  by  Agaadin took place on January 9.  However, the court’s decision was not given  to protection  lawyers, and a week later, the Court of Appeal considered the case, and  upheld the trial court.  The lawyer regards it as a  violation of the right  of  blogger  to appeal the judgment. Therefore, the defense filed an appeal against the decision of the preliminary  hearing of the Baku Court of Appeal. However, on may 14 the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal.

However, a judge sentenced a blogger to nine years in prison, finding him guilty under Article of the Criminal Code 234.4.3 (illegal possession and sale of a large scale of drugs), the maximum penalty for which is 12 years in prison.

 Rashad Ramazanov, Azerbaijani blogger who was criticized the authorities on Facebook and YouTube was arrested on 9 May 2013 and taken to the Organized Crime Department, where officials claimed to have found nine grams of heroin in his pocket. He denied the charges and insisted that the drugs had been planted on him. Ramazanov wrote under the pen name Rashad Hagigat Agaaddin.

Ramazanov’s lawyer Rovshan Shiraliyev told Human Rights Watch that, following his client’s arrest, police took him to the Organized Crime Department, where during a search the investigators claimed to have discovered 9.05 grams of heroin in his trouser pocket. For several days following Ramazanov’s arrest, Shiraliyev was not allowed to see him and, according to the lawyer, Ramazanov’s wife had no information about his whereabouts.

Furthermore, the defense filed an appeal to the  decision  of he appellation court.

On May 10, the Narimanov District Court in Baku sent Ramazanov to pre-trial custody for three months on charges under criminal code article 234.4.3, for illegal purchase, possession, and sale of a large amount of narcotics. The authorities kept him in police custody until May 20, in violation of the requirement under Azerbaijani criminal procedure to transfer the accused to a detention facility within 24 hours after the court order.

Rashad Ramazanov told his lawyers that he had been severely beaten several times while he was held in custody by the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Police have denied the claims. There has been no official investigation into them.

His wife, Konul Ismayilova, told Amnesty International that he had been beaten to punish him for his criticism of President Ilham Aliyev and his family, and in order to force him to confess.

“By law, Rashad Ramazanov  should have been transferred to an Investigative Detention Centre within 24 hours of the court decision ordering him to serve three months of pre-trial detention, but he was inexplicably kept at the Ministry of Internal Affairs for 11 days,” said John Dalhuisen.

Today’s jail sentences come amid a continuing and widespread crackdown on government critics in Azerbaijan, including media workers, NGOs and human rights activists.

Ramazanov calls the Azerbaijani authorities “a diabolical Aliyev’s regime.”

Բանակում մահվանդեպքով է գրանցվել, դատարանում՝քրեականգործ

Որպես մամլո խոսնակ անդրադառնալով  Վայոց ձորի մարզի զորամասերից մեկի՝ զինծառայող ավագ լեյտենանտ Մերուժան Աշոտի Հարությունյանի անհետացմանը նշեմ,  որ միակ ինֆորմացիան տալիս են այդ Գյուղի բնակիչները, ասելով, որ լեյտենանտին տեսել են գետում: Այս վարկածը  դեռ հաստատված չէ:  Ջրամբարի տարածքում որոնողական աշխատանքներ են կատարվում: Գյուղի բնակիչները նաև ասոմ են, թե զինվորականին տեսել են գետն ընկած, սակայն չեն կարողացել օգնել:

Սպայի անհետացման փաստի առիթով քրեական գործ է հարուցվել: Ավագ լեյտենանտ Մերուժան Աշոտի Հարությունյանը զորամասից անհետացել էր մոտ տասն օր առաջ:

Արտակարգ իրավիճակների նախարարությունը տեղեկացանում է, որ նրա դին հայտնաբերել են  հայ-ադրբեջանական սահմանային չեզոք գոտում` Տանձիկի ջրամբարում:  Նշենք, որ բռնության հետքեր դիակի վրա կան, թե՝ ոչ, կպարզվի դատաբժշկական փորձաքննությունից հետո:

Ավագլեյտենանտիանհետացմանփաստովքրեականգործըևսհարուցվելէմարտականհերթապահությունկամմարտականծառայությունկրելուկանոններըխախտելուհատկանիշներով:
