Lawyer Elchin Sadigov, who is under house arrest, applied to the court for permission to leave Baku.

APA reports that the Binagadi District Court did not satisfy the lawyer's claim.

Elchin Sadigov said that he will file an appeal against the decision.

The lawyer said that in most of the court decisions related to house arrest, people are not allowed to leave Baku, but the territory of Azerbaijan.

Sadigov said that his activities as a lawyer were limited by this.

"Before my arrest, I took the cases of my clients from different regions and defended their rights. Banning me from leaving the capital also violates the right to defense of those people."

It should be noted that Elchin Sadigov was arrested together with Avaz Zeynalli, the head of Khural Internet TV.

The lawyer was involved as an accused person under Article 32.5, 311.3.3 of the Criminal Code (assistance in taking a large amount of bribe) and a pretrial detention measure was chosen against him.

Later, Elchin Sadigov was released under house arrest by the decision of the Baku Court of Appeal.

In that decision, a number of prohibitions were imposed on him, one of which is related to not leaving the territory of Baku during house arrest.
