Court rejects Rauf Mirgadirov’s appeal
The Supreme Court considered an appeal filed against the verdict on journalist Rauf Mirgadirov on October 3.
Rauf’s lawyer Fuad Aghayev told APA that the court rejected the appeal.
Note that, Mirgadirov is charged with treason (Article 274). The Baku Court of Grave Crimes has sentenced him to six years in jail — the decision against which the appeal was filed.
Baku Court of Appeal sentenced the journalist to 5 years of probation and he was released from the courtroom. A cassation appeal was filed asking the Supreme Court for acquittal.
