On 26 October the European Court on Human Rights will publish sentences on appeals by 5 Azerbaijani nationals, the European Court told Trend.

The applicants, Etimad Asadov, Firudin Mamedov, Asaf Aliyev, Bahruz Jamalov, and Oqtay Mehdiyev, are Azerbaijani nationals who were born in 1963, 1970, 1965, 1962 and 1968 respectively and live in Baku (Azerbaijan).

On 20 December 2001, the applicants founded a public non-profit organization aimed at providing aid to Karabakh war invalids. The Ministry of Justice registered the public association as a legal entity in April 2006.

The applicants complained that failure to register their public association in a timely manner interfered with their right to freedom of association.

On the same day the resolutions will be taken to Germany, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Romania and Russia.
