Award-winning investigative journalist Khadija Ismayilova called Azerbaijan’s government a “repression machine” at the close of her trial on corruption charges Monday, dismissing her trial as a “scam” aimed to silence her.

 

Before she was cut off without finishing her remarks, the contributor to Radio Free Europe/Radio Libery told the court that her reporting proved President Ilham Aliyev had “squandered [the] state budget and his family members were direct beneficiaries.”
