representatives and students. Hungarian lawyer Klara Fiser will defend
rights of Safarov.

Jailers demanded Ramil Safarov to give the phone card on June 19,
2004. Safarov don't know Hungarian language and he therefore didn't
understand the jailers and this misunderstanding caused incident
among them. 8 police tied Safarov's arms and exercised force.

safarov's lawyers appealed to the court but the court didn't meet
the appeal through lack of evidences. Then the jailers appealed to
the court claiming Safarov put up resistance to jailers.
