We have just heard the news and want to share it with you: Khadija Ismayilova, the famous Azerbaijani investigative journalist finally gets out of prison today. Her sentence of seven years and a half in prison was commuted to a sentence of three and a half years of probation.
Our mobilization was successful, and we are celebrating Khadija’s 40th birthday on May 27 in a special way. We hope you will join us and send Khadija a birthday card. But let us not forget that Khadija was still convicted. Without recognizing her innocence, the regime of Aliyev has only found a way to silence the outrage of all defenders of freedom.
Justice will be done when those responsible for Khadija’s judicial harassment are brought to trial. Continue fighting alongside the heroes of information!
