APA reports that Gular Ahmadova missed the hearing presided over by judge Farhad Karimov.


The court partially sustained the cassation appeal. According to the judgement, Court of Appeal will partially conduct investigation, witnesses and experts will be requestioned.


Lawyer Afsar Talibov filed a petition to hold hearing with investigation and other ones. However the petitions were rejected. Thus, they filed a cassation appeal to the Supreme Court against the judgment of the preliminary hearing. Baku Court of Appeal will continue the hearing after the consideration of the cassation appeal.


Gular Ahmadova repudiated from her mandate as MP due to the scandal video released by former rector of Azerbaijan International University Elshad Abdullayev in September last year. Gular Ahmadova was sentenced to pretrial detention on February 13.

Baku Court of Grave Crimes sentenced Gular Ahmadova to 3-year imprisonment. The facts that it is her first crime, she has minor child, her social activities, election as an MP for three terms, suffering from various illnesses were taken into account as mitigating circumstances. Her lawyer appealed against this judgment.

Ahmadova faced charges under article 178.3.2 (acquisition of another property by abusing of trust) and 307.2(not informing about known preparing or committed minor serious or serious crimes) of the Criminal Code.
