“We are all Jabbar, we are all junkies”

The complaint against APFP Youth Committee member Jabbar Savalan’s rights being denied, not being allowed to see a lawyer and being under psychological pressure while interviewed while he was held at Sumgait Court of Law was not looked at today. The proceeding, which was scheduled to take place on 14 February at 17:00, has been postponed until 17 February. According to his lawyer Anar Gasimov, the reason for this is that Jabbar Savalan was not brought to the courthouse: “We did, however, make our complaint to the judge responsible for this case. Because it was Elman Mammadov, the same judge who gave the verdict regarding Jabbar Savalan’s pre-trial detention.” (Media Forum)

Even though the court proceedings did not take place, the demonstration to defend Jabbar Savalan was still held. The demonstration, which took place at a park near Sumgait Court of Law, was organized by the APFP Youth Committee. Demonstrators held placards with slogans such as “We don’t want bread, give us dope, dope, dope,” “We are all Jabbar, we are all junkies,” and held up photos of Jabbar Savalan. The demonstration was peaceful, there were no detainees.

Abulfaz Gurbanli, head of the committee to protect the rights of Jabbar Savalan, has said that there are plans to hold weekly demonstrations and meetings for Jabbar Savalan.
