On Tuesday, the Grave Crimes Court continued the trial of Samir Gurbanov and 10 more persons accused of financing the terrorist organization ISIS.
According to the parents of the defendants, they are on a hunger strike for 50 days, protesting against the unjustified criminal prosecution.

After the meeting, the parents of the accused went to the presidential administration to protest against the persecution of their children, but the police blocked their way.
The parents claimed that as a result of the hunger strike, Babek Mammadli, Aladdin Amir and Aflatun Bayramov lost 20 kg.
