Action of the Month

FREE JOURNALIST BLACKMAILED BY AZERBAIJAN'S GOVERNMENT

Khadija Ismayilova is an award-winning journalist. It was her work investigating and reporting on corruption at the highest levels in Azerbaijan's government that led to her seven-and-a-half-year prison on spurious charges last year.
Her government has gone to great lengths to punish Khadija over the years. She has been the victim of campaigns to shame her in state-owned media. Videos of her made in her own home without her knowledge were released by unknown individuals in an attempt to shame her into stopping her journalistic investigations. But Khadija has not committed a crime. Call on Azerbaijan's president to free her now.

Please take part in this Amnesty action.
