Azerbaijan, Baku, June 30 / Trend, K.Zerbaliyeva /

Prosecutor demanded for three years in prison for the Azerbaijani newspaper's editor-in-chief.

At the Garadagh District Court on the editor-in-chief Eynulla Fatullayev's case the state prosecutor demanded to sentence the defendant to three years imprisonment.

Former editor-in- chief of Gundalik Azerbaijan ("Daily Azerbaijan") and "Real Azerbaijan" newspapers Eynulla Fatullayev was arrested April 20 2007 and sentenced to 8.5 years imprisonment  

In the end of last year, 0,223 grams of heroin were founded in shoes and jacket lining of Fatullayeva. A criminal case was filed against the journalist under article 234.1 (illegal purchase or possession without intent to sell narcotics or psychotropic substances in quantities exceeding those necessary for personal consumption) of the Criminal Code.

The editor-in-chief was accused of calling to terror, kindling national hatred and tax evasion and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
The journalist does not recognize this charge and said that his arrest is related to professional activities.

Drugs diacetylmorphine (heroin), amphetamines and psychotropic substance flunitrozep-M were founded in samples of blood and urine of Eynulla Fatullayev.

According to the conclusion of drug testing, Fatullayev received diacetylmorphine (heroin), amphetamines and psychotropic substance benzodiazepines, but due to the fact that during the examination he did not suffer from addiction, there is no need to bring him to the treatment from this disease.
