Urgent Action outcome: Activist released after being rearrested
Azerbaijani activist Bayram Mammadov was released on 29 April after having spent 30 days in administrative detention under trumped-up accusations.
Bayram Mammadov has not complained about further ill-treatment while in detention since Amnesty International issued the Urgent Action. No new criminal or administrative charges were brought against him as the “administrative detention” neared its end. It is possible that international outcry on Bayram Mammadov’s re-arrest, including Amnesty International’s Urgent Action, prevented further ill-treatment against him and possible extension of the detention.
NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUESTED FROM THE NETWORK. MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT APPEALS.
