  Dear sir/madam


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.

Yours faithfully,

Boyuk Resuloglu

For and on behalf of

The Committee for the Defence of the Rights of World Azerbaijanis
