Some news on the closure of day.az

Apparently the website was only closed for internal reconstruction work and no political intentions or factors were at stake when the portal got shut down yesterday. Or so says the head of public and political department of the presidential apparatus- Ali Hasanov. "The reports that day.az was closed under the pressure from the authorities are not true. I am not aware of the reason for the closure of this website" explained in his statement to ANS (Azerbaijan News Service) Hasanov. 

Then why the website didn't notify its readers in advance (which it usually does whenever there is any kind of work on the portal) and why the statements explaining the reason for closure only appeared several hours later?

Thus, for the reasons unknown or known but untrue the future of day.az remains unclear. It is likely that the website will resume its work, but what is not known is whether it will resume its work as day.az before shutting down- objective, precise and trustworthy online news portal...

Well, there r lot of mysteries around this issue. Couple of businessmen - close friends of ours, say that day.az is paying back the ads money. Kind of a strange thing to do if one's closed only for the reconstruction, isn't it?
