14 May 2014
Shahin Novruzlu and fellow youth activists from the pro-democracy movement NIDA campaigned for democracy and against human rights abuses and widespread corruption in Azerbaijan. In March 2013 they created a Facebook event calling for a peaceful protest against injustice in the country.
Shortly afterwards, Shahin and seven other NIDA activists were arrested. Some of them were tortured. As a result, Shahin, who was 17 years old at the time, lost four of his front teeth. His friend Mammad lost hearing in one ear.
Shahin and the rest of the activists are currently in detention on false charges of illegal firearms possession and plotting mass disorder. They were all sentenced for between 6 and 8 years on the same day that Azerbaijan was declared as the next Chairman of the principal human rights institution in Europe, the Council of Europe.

Socialist Party MP touches raw nerve Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan has objected to the participation of the Socialist Party MP Van Bommel in a conference on the Nagorno-Karabakh region. At the Free University in Amsterdam there will be coming weekend a meeting about that region, under control since 1994 by Armenian troops and militias.
In a letter to parliament the embassy of Azerbaijan writes that they deeply regret Van Bommel’s presence at the congress.
“Pure intimidation and propaganda,” Van Bommel called the letter. He says he does not care about it.
The embassy expects that the “authorities will ensure that Van Bommel at the seminar on non-recognized countries will act in accordance with international law.” When asked to clarify this the embassy remained silent. …
MPs announced that they will jointly express their displeasure towards the embassy.
