In his appeal, Novruzlu expresses repentance for his actions: “Dear Mr President, I, Novruz Shahin Ibrahim oglu, was born on September 16, 1995.

Over the past year, I have had lots of chances to take a look at my juvenile life. I think having been a prisoner is the biggest mistake in my life. Leaning on your constant principles of humanism and patriotism, I ask you to give me one more chance to correct this mistake of mine and forgive me. I’d like to note that I have never been and won’t ever be a member of any political organization. Dear Mr President, I promise you that I will live the rest of my life as a decent citizen of our state”.
