An appeal has been submitted against the sentence issued on Ramil Safarov, Trend reports with reference to lawyer Adil Ismaylov speaking at the conference in the International press center.
Mr Ismaylov said violations have been admitted at the last session on R. Safarovs case held in Budapest Court. For instance, when Mr Safarov was saying his last word, the judge interrupted him, which is prohibited by Hungarian laws. В"The judge stopped Mr Safarov, saying Azeri officer supposedly offends Armenian officers. Thus, the judge was trying to oppress R. Safarov. However, Mr Safarov lawyers have brought to the attention of the court that there was no offense in his words. In general, the judge opinion on R.Safarov was biased and this resulted in a life imprisonment verdictВ" - Mr Ismaylov said
The lawyer said also the judge had openly shown his bias yet a year ago. В"Yet prior to the legal investigation, examination of accused and witnesses, the judge said he would sentence R.Safarov to life imprisonment anywayВ" - the lawyer claimed.
Mr Ismaylov said he hoped for change of the verdict by Appeal Court that shall process the appeal within the year. В"I think The Appeal Court will change the penalty and there will be no need to address the higher instances, including European Court.В"
