On August, 14 in the Sabail District Court, a court hearing on the lawsuit filed by imprisoned "Azadlig" Newspaper Editor-in-Chief Ganimat Zahid regarding the manuscripts of a book he was writing took place. Judge Famil Nasibov chaired the hearing.
One of G. Zahid’s representatives, Fariz Namazov ,talked during the hearing and filed a motion for prisoners who are held in the same cell as Zahid, his wife Ayanda Mursaliyeva, “Azadlig” newspaper director Azer Ahmadov and Bayil Prison Head Misir Aliyev to testify as witnesses. The judge partially fulfilled the motion. Zahid’s wife A. Mursaliyeva and “Azadlig” Newspaper director Azer Ahmadov testified.
Mursaliyeva said that there’s nothing against the government in the manuscripts and the manuscripts discuss socio-political issues in Azerbaijan.
