Families of Jailed Bloggers Appeal to Obama
By Butler Cain
According to Azeri Report, the families of two jailed Azerbaijani bloggers are asking President Obama to push for the men’s release during Friday’s expected talk with Azerbaijan leader Ilham Aliyev.
Obama and Aliyev plan to meet in New York during the UN General Assembly gathering.
Azeri Report reports that families of Adnan Hajizada and Emin Milli, who have been in jail since last year, have asked Obama to come “to the defense of free speech and fairness.”
