According to Reporters Without Borders, a judge has rejected a request for the early release of Ganimat Zahid, the editor of the opposition daily Azadlig, on the grounds that he refused to take part in a volleyball game in prison. Describing the decision as “illegal and devoid of any basis,” Zahid’s lawyer, Elchin Sadyhov, said he was determined to take the case to the European Court of Human Rights.
My legal advice to Zahid: telling the judge you didn't play because you had cramps might work. It always worked for me in gym from 6th to 8th grade.
My question to the judge: Really?
