Commissioner Muižnieks intervenes before the European Court of Human Rights on the case of Intigam Aliyev

Today the Commissioner made public his written contribution sent to the European Court of Human Rights concerning the case of human rights defender and lawyer Intigam Aliyev.

The Commissioner underscores that the present case is an illustration of a serious and systemic human rights problem in Azerbaijan, where critical voices are often subject to reprisals and judicially harassed.

Today’s intervention is the second of five that the Commissioner will submit regarding Azerbaijan. The next ones will concern the cases of Rasul Jafarov, Anar Mammadli and Leyla and Arif Yunus.
