The Azerbaijani government should stop the harrassment against lawyers representing political prisoners

An international human rights watchdog has called on the Azerbaijani government to stop what it calls the harassment of two lawyers known for representing political prisoners. Robert Herman, vice president for international programs at the U.S.-based NGO Freedom House, said in a November 3 statement that the Azerbaijani government “should end its campaign of innuendo and threats against Elchin Sadiqov and Fariz Namazli, two of the few lawyers in the country who dare to represent political prisoners and bring attention to government wrongdoing.” Herman added that “the [Azerbaijani] government should stop mistreating lawyers for conducting their professional duties.”
