Tortured and jailed for graffiti
Two young students, Bayram Mammadov and Giyas Ibrahimov, dared to criticize the state in the most public way they could. They painted a defiant message on the statue of Azerbaijan’s former president – on the eve of his birthday.
On October 25, Giyas received a sentence of 10 years in prison. Bayram is locked up awaiting trial. If convicted, he faces up to 12 years in prison - all for a Facebook post criticizing the government.
Urge Azerbaijan’s president to make sure that Bayram Mammadov and Giyas Ibrahimov are released right away.
