Azerbaijan- among most censored countries


The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) released a new report on the "Most Censored Countries" in the world on May 2nd. 

Azerbaijan, is a country that is singled out for its record of press harassment in all the possible senses of this phrase and is not surprisingly among the "Runners up" countries of the report, standing strong and firm together with countries like Turkmenistan, China, Ethiopia, Vietnam, and Sudan. 

I guess having fancy boutique shops and promo videos of beautiful nature doesn't really improve the records does it- not everyone can be treated as sheep after all!

And here is a video by the Human Rights Watch that summarizes what I just wrote very well.
