International Partnership for Human Rights filed a Rule 9.2 submission with respect to the Muradova (no. 22684/05), Mammadov (Jalaloglu) (no. 34445/04) and Mikayil Mammadov (no. 4762/05) group of cases v. Azerbaijan.

In this submission, IPHR provides an assessment of the Azerbaijani government’s reported measures taken so far, with a particular focus on legislative amendments, limited access to victims in cases of ill-treatment and torture and information on such allegations, and the failure to effectively investigate and prosecute those responsible. The submission also provides the latest examples of cases of reported ill-treatment and torture of victims, including politically or otherwise sensitive cases in the country.
