Plaintiff failed to appear for trial against journalist

A hearing was held today in the Agdam district court on the lawsuit filed by the owner of Lombard N1, Malahat Gurbanova, against the editor of criminal.az website Anar Mammadov.

According to the journalist himself, neither the plaintiff nor her representative appeared at the trial.

“She sent a motion to order an examination  to establish that there is an insult in the expression“ Pawnshop Malahat ”. The court dismissed the application,” Mammadov said. According to him, the court offered him a lawyer at the expense of the state.

“I refused and presented a warrant for my lawyer Elchin Sadigov, who will participate in the next trial,” Mammadov said. The judge scheduled the next hearing  on January 10th.
