The trial of Adnan Hajizada and Emin Milli, the two Azerbaijani bloggers facing charges of “hooliganism” and “deliberate physical violence”, resumed yesterday. Supporters gathered outside the courtroom where the hearing was taking place were arrested, and although representatives from the European Council and foreign embassies attended the hearing, journalists and representatives from human rights organisations were denied access.
