This morning, imprisoned youth activist Bakhtiyar Hajiyev was accorded conditional release, after a Supreme Court hearing under judge Ali Seyfaliyev ruled on his cassation appeal. Today's session followed the earlier rejection of his appeal for conditional early release. The Supreme Court ruled in his favor, and for the immediate execution of the ruling. Under these terms, the original charges of military service evasion have not been withdrawn, and Hajiyev cannot leave the country for the remaining nine months of his prison sentence.
