CE Committee of Ministers to discuss fulfillment of editor-in-chief's case

Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 26 /Trend, K.Zarbaliyeva/

The situation on fulfilling the European Court's decision on Fatullayev's case by the Azerbaijani government will be considered at a meeting of the CE Committee of Ministers next week, Chingiz Askerov, Plenipotentiary Representative of Azerbaijan to the European Human Rights Court, told Trend.

"The CE Committee of Ministers holds meetings on an investigation of the situation on the European Justice Court's decisions six times a year. Implementing these decisions by different countries is being discussed. Besides Fatullayev's case, the situation on fulfilling a number of other decisions with respect to Azerbaijan will be discussed next week," Askerov said.

He said that the members of the Azerbaijani representation to the European Court will attend the meeting. They will provide information on the country court's decision.

The Azerbaijani Supreme Court Plenum considered the case of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) regarding editor-in-chief of the Daily Azerbaijan and Real Azerbaijan newspapers Eynulla Fatullayev Nov. 11.

Azerbaijani Supreme Court Plenum session on Thursday decided that the Supreme Court's decision dated August 21, 2007 on Eynulla Fatullayev's imprisonment according to articles 147.1, 147.2 of the Criminal Code (slandering, accusing of grave or especially grave crime) shall be annulled and the criminal case upon these articles shall be terminated.

Fatullayev was arrested April 20, 2007 and sentenced to 8.5 years in prison. He was accused of inciting terrorism and ethnic hatred, as well as tax evasion.

The European Court announced its decision regarding Fattulayev's appeal on its website on April 22. The court demanded the journalist's immediate release.

Recently, the European Court issued a final ruling on Fatullayev's suit against Azerbaijan. According to the decision, Fatullayev must be freed and paid 28,000 euro.

The Azerbaijani government brought a suit against the court's decision to the Grand Chamber. The Grand Chamber did not allow the suit. It kept the court's decision in force.

About 0.223 grams of heroin were found in Fatullayev's shoes and jacket in December 2009. A criminal case was later filed, and the court sentenced Fatullayev to an additional 2.6 years in prison. Fatullayev appealed the decision in the Baku Appeals Court.

The trial is underway.
