Leyla Yunus Was Released from Custody

Azerbaijan's jailed human rights activist Leyla Yunus has been released from custody following a request by her lawyers for her to be freed due to her deteriorating health condition, Radio Free Liberty informs.

She had been sentenced to 8 1/2 years in jail after being convicted by a court in Baku on charges of fraud and tax evasion.

Her husband, Arif Yunus, who was sentenced to seven years in prison, was released from custody on health grounds in November.

However, the couple both still face charges of treason and their legal situation remains unchanged, despite being released.
