Reports: Azerbaijani Video Blogger Set Free
The Baku Court of Appeals on November 18 decided to release Azerbaijani youth activist and blogger Adnan Hajizade from prison, Azerbaijani media reports. Hajizade had been serving a two-year prison term on charges of hooliganism and violence following the distribution of a satirical video that mocked the Azerbaijani government and its imports of donkeys.
Fellow youth activist Emin Milli, with whom Hajizade worked on the video, is still serving a two-and-a-half-year prison sentence, on the same charges.
