Intigam Aliyev kept in prison under severe conditions

Head of the Legal Education Society Intigam Aliyev is still contained in the Baku prison in the so-called “quarantine”, the human rights activist’s daughter Narmin Karimli wrote at her Facebook account.

He is still kept in quarantine, which is a small room in penalty section of the detention center. Eight people in a small room. Everyone (except Aliyev) smokes, but there is no place for smoking so, the room is also smoky. The little window on the door of the cell should be left open, but it is closed all the time. Temperature is unbearably high and inmates are sweating all the time. There is no bath room, toilet is impossible to use. Water is running only twice a day, one hour each. For the rest of the time they have a small can to keep water and eight people depend on that can. The room is not aired. Two small windows under the ceiling are open but there is no screen on the window and the small cell is also full of mosquitos which makes it impossible to sleep. Intigam Aliyev has not been taken out of the cell in these three days.

Aliyev was arrested Aug. 8 on charges of not paying taxes, illegal entrepreneurship and abuse of office.

However, according to the firm belief of the democratic public of Azerbaijan, Aliyev is persecuted for his principled stance on human rights and criticism of the arbitrariness in the judicial-enforcement system of Azerbaijan, as well as assistance to citizens of Azerbaijan in the restoration of their rights in the European Court of Human Rights.
