Demands from Azerbaijani Authorities To Enforce ECtHR Decision

Posted by Info on 07/06/2010

Azerbaijan has failed to submit an appeal against the decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) prescribing to release journalist Einullah Fatullaev. The Amnesty International (AI) demands from the Azerbaijani authorities to enforce the ECtHR decision.

On June 3, the AI held a picket opposite the building of Azerbaijani embassy. The picketers demanded to release Einullah Fatullaev.
“Together with our colleagues in other countries we went out to Azerbaijani embassies with a demand to immediately release the journalist – prisoner of conscience. We assert that the court decisions in his relation were politicized. Under the decision of the ECtHR he should be released and receive compensation. At present, Azerbaijan has failed to lodge the appeal. And according to the rules, the decision should be enforced within three months after being made.”
