BAKU, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - Chief editor of an Azerbaijani newspaper has been sentenced to five years in prison on high treason charges.
On Friday, Baku’s court for especially aggravated crimes sentenced Gilal Mamedov, the founder and editor-in-chief of the Tolyshi Syado (The Voice of Talysh) newspaper, to five years in a maximal security penal colony on charges of high treason, stirring up interethnic, racial and inter-religious hatred, and illegal possession and sales of drugs.
Mamedov was arrested in June 2012. Investigators said he had been conniving with Iranian secret services since 1992. The police said he had been selling information “used in hostile activities against Azerbaijan.” Apart from that, investigators said materials published in his newspaper “openly incited interethnic hatred.”
