Leyla Yunus: The world must know what a bloody tyranny is reigning in the CoE chair-country Azerbaijan

Azerbaijani human rights defender Leyla Yunus, who is charged with high treason, has disseminated a statement saying that the world must know what a bloody tyranny is reigning in the CoE chair-country Azerbaijan, according to Azerbaijani media.  On 30 June, Leyla and her husband Arif Yunus were arrested on fabricated charges, including high treason. 

"I have been working on the problem of political prisoners for a long time and I am well aware now about tortures in the national security ministry's jail. I understand the decision to physically destroy our family:  Arif and me," she said.

Yunus said she was warned that would be killed after the murder of Elmar Huseynov in 2005, but most likely the decision was canceled.

"But, today in 2014 bloody tyranny in Azerbaijan has no limits. I clearly understand that Arif and I will be viciously tortured to death. Let everyone know what a bloody tyranny is reigning in Azerbaijan, a country chairing the Council of Europe," Yunus says in the statement.
