We are very concerned about this incident as an organization. Such cases continue to pose a real threat to the members of Nefes LGBT. If the culprits are not punished it could lead to even more severe crimes.
In December of last year, the head of Nefes LGBT Azerbaijan, Cavid Nabiyev, was attacked by 4 unknown people. The incident took place in Sumgayit city. The Sumgayit N4 police district did not take notice of the case until it was sent to the Minister of İnternal Affairs, Ramil Usubov. As a result, only one of the accused was punished and the case was thrown out.
