Drawing Attention To The Case Of Azerbaijan’s Khadija Ismayilova
“Earlier this week, Khadija Ismayilova, an Azerbaijani investigative journalist and contributor to RFE/RL, was awarded a prestigious media freedom award from the PEN American Center.
“Ismayilova was unable to be in New York to collect the PEN/Barbara Goldsmith Freedom To Write Award, however, as she is beginning her sixth month in pretrial detention in Baku following her arrest on December 5 on charges ranging from tax evasion to abuse of power to inciting a man to attempt suicide.”
An excellent set of cartoons. Unfortunately, this award at the recent PEN gala was almost lost in the hoopla about the Charlie Hebdo award.
