Several international organisations are expressing concern for deterioration of freedom of speech in Azerbaijan as the turn of the year has brought restrictions of foreign radio broadcasting, referendum on president mandate and a lawsuit against a famous human rights defender.

An article on the situation in Azerbaijan written by the Peace Institute's volunteer Tamara Grigoryeva can be found here.

The chapter on Azerbajdzjan in the Human Rights Watchs World report 2009 discusses restrictions of freedom of speech in Azerbaijan.
There is also an article on the lawsuit against human rights lawyer Leila Yunus.
In Freedom in the world 2009 the Freedomhouse is reporting on president Aliyevs increasing monopolisation of power.
On the website of the Norwegian Helsinki Assebly you can among other things find an appeal on the restrictions of radio broadcasting.
