Prisoners of conscience in Azerbaijan
How would you feel if your teenage son had been tortured in prison?
Shahin Novruzlu was aged only 17 when he was detained. He was among a group of 8 NIDA activists in Azerbaijan who were sentenced to 6 to 8 years in prison on 6 May 2014, the very day Azerbaijan was declared Chairman of the Council of Europe, for their peaceful activities. Some of them were tortured. Shahin lost four of his front teeth and his friend Mammad lost hearing in one ear.
Amnesty International believes these young people are prisoners of conscience.
Please watch the video of Shahin's parents and take action.
