Eynulla Fatullayev asks Ministry of Justice for protective clothing and weapon

After coming out of solitary confinement on 31 March, Eynulla Fatullayev wrote a letter to the Minister of Justice Fikrat Mammadov. His lawyer Anar Gasimov informs Azadliq Radiosu: “In the letter, Eynulla asks the minister for a helmet, a stab-proof vest, and a firearm. Basically he is asking the minister for a guard so as to ensure his safety.”

Anar Gasimov says that by staying in solitary confinement for a month, Eynulla was trying to protest the injustices against him, but this had no result. He adds that if Eynulla is not freed, he will petition for the court to allow him to serve the remaining part of the sentence with a light punishment.

Editor-in-chief of “Gundelik Azerbaycan” (AZ: Daily Azerbaijan) and “Realny Azerbaijan” (RU: Real Azerbaijan) newspapers Eynulla Fatullayev has been in prison for four years.
