“I thank the US government and the leadership of the European Union. West removed the shackles from my feet. I want the government of Azerbaijan to remove the shackles from my hands. I will continue the struggle and will not leave Azerbaijan” former Minister of Health Ali Insanov said right after he was freed after 14 years of jail time.

According to Mr. Insanov, the amnesty was unexpected for him.

He was one of the harsh critic of incumbent Ilham Aliyev even after 14 years in jail.

He was originally jailed for an attempt to overthrow the government but later the charges dropped and he was charged with corruption and money laundering.
