Aliev's advocate reports violation of his client's rights

Anar Gasymly, the advocate of the rights defender Intigam Aliev, who is kept in SIZO (pre-trial prison), complains that the administration of the facility violates the privacy of his correspondence with his client.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 8, Intigam Aliev, the head of the Legal Education Society (LES), was summoned to the Investigating Department of Grave Crimes of the General Prosecutor's Office of Azerbaijan as a witness in a criminal case against a number of NGOs. On the same day, he was detained as a suspect. The Nasimi District Court of Baku arrested Intigam Aliev for a period of three months.

Gasymly told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that for the last time he visited his client at the Baku SIZO-1 in Kyurdakhany village on August 24.

"Intigam Aliev is an experienced lawyer himself. He writes the notes associated with the tactics of his defence and compiles petitions. However, before his meetings with me the personnel take away and check all his notes; sometimes they don't give them back. This is a violation of the privacy of advocate-detainee communication and breaks the right to efficient legal defence," said Gasymly, stressing that should this practice continue, he will take the necessary legal steps with a prospect of lodging a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights.

Besides, Gasymly said that during the searches of Aliev's house and the office of the Legal Education Society that he heads, prosecutors had illegally confiscated the equipment and documents that had nothing to do with the case. This only confirms the political motives of his client's prosecution, said the advocate.
