Meydan TV Campaign To Support Press Freedom in Azerbaijan
In Azerbaijan, journalists are working under huge risks of arrest. Emin Milli, writer and dissident from Azerbaijan, was imprisoned in 2009 for two and a half years for his critical views about the government. After his release, Milli started his own non-profit online media, Meydan TV. Since then, he and his coworkers, as well as his family, have been constantly harassed by the government. Milli’s brother-in-law remains detained by the government under the charge of “tax evasion.”
At the Global Investigative Journalism Conference in October, Milli launched a campaign to support Meydan TV.
