APA reports that Davies gave a testimony at the court led by Judge Elchin Gurbanov. She said that 4 unknown persons attacked them at the night from 15 to16 June: “They stroke me and Amanda down to the ground and kicked us. We have different injuries. We were afraid very much”. Then legal representative of the complainant Elchin Sadigov requested time from the court for familiarization with the materials of the criminal case. The process was postponed till October 27.

Complainant Erickson didn’t participate in the court because of her stay in the US.

The foreigners’ mission in Azerbaijan was to hold trainings for civil society activists and journalists and cooperate with NGOs. Erickson cooperates with US’s prestigious The Washington Post” and The New-York Times newspapers.
