    Updated list of political prisoners in Azerbaijan

    A new list of political prisoners in Azerbaijan has just been published. The list now comprises of 80 names, as compared to the 98 which were included in the list published in August last year. Although this means that there have been some very welcome releases, the Government of Azerbaijan continues its policy of imprisoning what they consider opponents. The last few weeks, prominent human rights defenders Rasul Jafarov and Intigam Aliyev were convicted to many years' prison. In 2014, Political Prisoners in Azerbaijan received the Sakharov Freedom Award from NHC.

    Annual Meeting:

    NHC Annual Report 2014

    The NHC annual meeting, on 29 April 2015, adopted our 2014 Annual Report. The report is an account of a wide range of our activities last year. With the worrisome developments in the area of our geographical focus, this has been a truly busy year for the Norwegian Helsinki Committee. Naturally the events in Ukraine have been high on our agenda in 2014. The imprisonment of so many of our friends in Azerbaijan demanded much of our attention. In the Annual Report you can read about our engagement in Ukraine, where the NHC has observed both the parliamentary and presidential elections, in addition to carrying out facts finding missions to Ukraine. We have met with Ukrainian officials, activists, journalists, volunteers and internally displaced, recording gripping accounts of people deeply affected by this infinitely tragic year. You can also read about all our other fields of activities in 2014.
