Council Of Europe Is Pressed On Fatullayev Case

Azerbaijan - Journalist Eynulla Fatullayev in the Baku Appeals Court - 25Jan2011
The New York-based media watchdog Committee To Protect Journalists (CPJ) has called on the Council of Europe to press Azerbaijan to respect rulings of the European Court of Human Rights exonerating prominent Azeri journalist Eynulla Fatullayev. CPJ and numerous other organizations say that Fatullayev was jailed in retaliation for criticizing the government's official probe into the 2005 murder of independent editor Elmar Huseynov. CPJ's well-documented post, published as the Council's Committee of Ministers convenes in Strasbourg, is here.
