On World Press Freedom Day 2016, RFE/RL spotlights attacks on press freedom in Azerbaijan, including the forced closure of RFE/RL’s Baku Bureau and the imprisonment of investigative journalist and RFE/RL contributor Khadija Ismayilova. Winner of the 2016 UNESCO Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize, Ismayilova is serving a 7 ½ year prison sentence after being convicted on charges rights groups say are retribution for her reporting on corruption involving senior government officials.
