Amnesty International Concerned for Intigam Aliyev

Amnesty International expressed concern about the deteriorating state of the “prisoner of conscience” Intigam Aliyev and refusal to provide him with medical care.

Amnesty International calls on the Azerbaijani authorities to immediately and unconditionally release Aliyev and ensure the provision of appropriate assistance, including hospitalization.

The statement also expressed concern about the limitations of Aliyev’s right to defense – an important condition for fair trial.

Contained in jail in Kurdakhani, Aliyev was examined in October. He suffers from osteochondrosis and protrusion (hernia) of the spine. However, he was left in the cell, appointing outpatient treatment that does not work.

Intigam Aliyev was arrested Aug. 8 on charges of tax evasion, abuse of office and illegal business.
