My last post was on a protest in Washington, DC to take place on Friday on behalf of Azeri bloggers. Today RFE/RL reports that Emin Milli and Adnan Hadji-zadeh remain in prison and have now been charged with assault on top of the hooliganism charge.
These young men were assaulted in a restaurant earlier this summer. They reported the incident and instead of finding justice, they themselves were arrested for hooliganism. If you can, please show your support for their release this Friday in front of the Azerbaijani embassy in DC.
