Abstract / Description

This article discusses the ground-breaking judgment in Fatullayev v Azerbaijan in which the European Court ordered the immediate release of imprisoned journalist Eynulla Fatullayev, but who at the time of going to press nevertheless remained in custody. Fatullayev was the founder and chief editor of two newspapers in Azerbaijan well known for their harsh criticism of the Azerbaijani Government. This judgment is of great importance for Azerbaijan as it addresses topical issues under Art.10 ECHR (freedom of expression), as well as for ECtHR case law in terms of Art. 46 (execution of judgments).
