Hajizada still in jail after appeal postponed twice

Alumnus and activist Adnan Hajizada’s appeal is set for Feb. 6 after being delayed twice, once by the defense. Hajizada’s first appeal, which was scheduled for Jan. 8, was postponed when the complaining witnesses, Babak Huseynov and Vusal Mammadov, were not there. The second appeal date was postponed when a lawyer of Hajizada and fellow activist, Emin Milli, was sick. The Azeri equivalent to a subpoena has not reached Huseynov and Mammadov because they do not live at the address that was given to the court, according to the Turan Information Agency. The documents have continued to be returned. [testing email to Soup] http://www.thecollegianur.com/2010/01/28/hajizada-still-in-jail-after-appeal-postponed-twice/

Interviews wanted at jailed Baku blogger's London protest

I'll have a small video camera at the demonstration outside the Azerbaijan Embassy on Friday Jan 22 @ 1pm.

The idea is to get short, 30" clips from some of those who made the effort to turn up.

The interviews will go into an article on Media Helping Media (MHM) and on MHM's You Tube site and our Facebook Group.

So if you see me with a small Flip camera and want to send a message, please say hi.
