ilqar_memmedovIlgar Mamedov, a leader of REAL Movement, who is in the pre-trial jail in Sheki region,   is afraid of provocations against him, the  executive director of  REAL Movement,  Natig Jafarli,  wrote about it on his Facebook page. According to him, during seven months  Mamedov was held in a solitary confinement in jail in  Sheki. However, on May 31 prison management representative came to Mamedov , and advised him to be careful , because  there is a snake in  his ward. On June 1 the same man  came to Mamedov and said  that a new prisoner will be placed to him. Later  two smokers prisoners were place in his ward, although prison leadership knows that he cannot stand cigarette smoke.

Mamedov told his relatives on the phone what is happening , including the postponement of the trial  of the  Court of Appeal, that it is the psychological pressure on him.

According to the lawyer Fuad Agayev, under the law , a prisoner has a right to remain in solitary confinement. On the other hand, it is dangerous to health to  place the smoker in the same cell with no smoker. The lawyer intends to meet with Mamedov June 5.

On March 17 Ilgar Mamedov was sentenced to  seven years in prison in connection with Ismayilly events.

On May 22 the European Court of Human Rights found a violation of  Mamedov’s rights. Earlier, Amnesty International recognized Mamedov “as prisoner of conscience.”
