Lawyer: "There is no legal basis for Fuad Abbasov's deportation to Azerbaijan"

There is no legal basis for the information that journalist Fuad Abbasov will be deported to Azerbaijan tomorrow.

F.Abbasov's lawyer Teyyub Sharifov wrote on his social network account, ONA’s Moscow correspondent reports.

He said that due to the absence of a judicial act, the relevant court documents on the impossibility of Fuad Abbasov’s extradition were submitted to the special detention center for the foreign citizens located in the Korolev city of Moscow province and relevant department of the Penitentiary Service.

The lawyer added that today visiting Fuad Abbasov, he revealed that there were preparations for his deportation on May 31. "They are basing on the decision of the Khimki Court of Moscow, and they said that ticket to Azerbaijan had already been purchased. The management of the special detention center did not respond to my question of “who was bought by the ticket."

T. Sharifov said that the first hearing on the appeal of F.Abbasov's extradition decision from Russia will be held on June 6 at 10:00 am.
