Hunger strike in Azerbaijan

Following ECHR's (European Court of Human Rights) final "decision calling for an immediate release of Eynulla Fatullayev, edit-in-chief of 'Gundelik Azerbaijan' and 'Realniy Azerbaycan' newspapers" issued on October 4th and Azerbaijani authorities so far failing to execute the decision, a number of journalists united in a hunger strike.

A tweet feed from ljmaximus  informed of another three writers joining (replacing the previous three journalists) the strike today.

On October 4th, ECHR ruled its decision as final under Article 44.3, paragraph C of the European Convention of Human Rights.
