A judge told OCCRP journalist Khadija Ismayilova today that she had to pay profit taxes for Radio Free Europe, where she used to work. A bogus claim since she was never responsible for the finances of RFE's Azerbaijan office.
Khadija already served 18 months in prison after reporting on the corruption of the first family and other Azerbaijani elites.
Support Khadija and make this case known.
