Baku, Azerbaijan, Aug. 10
Court session on the criminal case against Khadija Ismayilova continued August 10 at the Baku Court of Grave Crimes.
The session was chaired by Judge Ramella Allahverdiyeva.
During the court session, public prosecutor Ramazan Hadiyev asked aggrieved party Tural Mustafayev about the reason for his absence in the last court session, as he was summoned to the current session compulsorily.
Mustafayev answered that he was unable to take part in the last court session due to health problems.
Afterwards, Khadija Ismayilova asked the court for an opportunity for organization of defense by lawyer Yalchin Imanov under the article 147 of the Criminal Code, and to settle some technical issues, namely, to provide her a right to make phone calls twice a week.
Then Ismayilova's lawyer, Fakhraddin Mehdiyev made a motion for Tural Mustafayev's interviews, made with the newspaper Yeni Musavat on May 3 and August 4, to be included to the evidence list.
The court left the motion open.
Afterwards, the aggrieved party, Mustafayev gave testimony. He said his suicide attempts were not related to Ismayilova.
Noting that in May, September and October 2014, he attempted suicide, Mustafayev said all of these attempts were related with problems in relations with his ex-fiancée Rovshana Rahimova, and with his weak nerves.
