Re COMPLAINT AGAINST
MR. KAMRANI’S TRIAL IN A CLOSED SESSION
We are providing you the
translation of a recent news item posted on the Webblog of Mr. Saleh
Kamrani, which has also been confirmed by ASMEK and Hag and
other news media of Southern Azerbaijan. This court was held in a
closed session and we believe that this contravene Mr. Saleh
Kamrani’s human rights. We therefore wish to complain against this
irregular proceeding, although we have not consulted with Mr.
Kamrani, his wife or with his lawyer in raising this complaint. The
fact is that his detention has been illegal in the first place, the
accusation is not recognisable is vague and now the proceedings of
his trial are also conducted in an illegal fashion. We request you
to investigate this case with high urgency and follow up the
situation when a sentence is delivered.
For and on behalf of
The Committee for the Defence of the Rights of
The Translation of the News Item on
Mr. Saleh Kamrani
The first court
session was held against the detained lawyer of the national
movement of Southern Azerbaijan, Mr. Salhe Kamrani!
The first session of the trial of Mr
Saleh Kamrani was held on Wednesday 13 September 2006 at
11.30 in Branch 13 of the Penal Court of the Revolutionary
Court. He has been in detention since 14 June 2006.
This trial was a closed session and took
approximately one and half hour. According to the statement
by Mrs. Mina ESGERI, (the wife of Mr. Kamrani) Mr. Kamrani
was in good spirit when entering to the court and when
leaving there. The court sentence will be issued in the next
few days. The only accusation against Mr. Kamrani is
“propaganda against the system” and according to Article 500
of Islamic Penal Code, the penalty is imprisonment with a
term from 3 months to one year.
