Statement by Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland on the release of human rights defender Ilgar Mammadov in Azerbaijan

Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland made the following statement today:

“News that the Shaki Court of Appeal in Azerbaijan today ordered the release of prominent human rights defender Ilgar Mammadov after more than five years in prison is to be welcomed. We cannot accept political prisoners in Europe, innocent people should not be deprived of their liberty and the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights

must be executed.”
