Petty matter no more?! Prisoner of conscience- Taleh Khasmammadov released from jail

Yesterday, Taleh Khasmammadov, blogger, was released from prison by decree of pardon signed by the President Ilham Aliyev. His first words [AZ] outside of jail were, "Everything feels more valuable. Freedom is sweet." He also spoke of the conditions inside the prison- beatings, torture and corruption are becoming reoccurring incidents with overall situation worsening, especially in the last few months.

If only the rest of the arrested journalists could taste that sweet freedom too...
