Categorised under the topics of Asia and Human rights.

That this House condemns the imprisonment of young Azerbaijani bloggers Adnan Hajizade and Emin Milli, and agrees with Amnesty International and other human rights groups, that their detention and trial were politically motivated and aimed at stifling freedom of speech in Azerbaijan; joins Amnesty International in calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Adnan and Emin; and appeals to President Ilham Aliev to fulfil Azerbaijan's commitments, as a member of the Council of Europe and OSCE to respect human rights and freedom of speech, and end the persecution of opposition activists and independent media.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
