Khadija Ismayilova, Radio Liberty correspondent in Baku, and her lawyer Adil Ismaylov held a press conference today and accused the Prosecutor's Office of sustained interference in her personal life.

"Yesterday's information is a continuation of the Baku Prosecutor's intervention in my personal life and a second offense in that direction," said Ismayilova.

She believes that investigating agencies, in addition to the newspapers "Yeni Azerbaijan" and "Iki Sahil", have connections with those behind the blackmail threat she received on March 7th, which contained illegally taken intimate photos. "The orders behind these acts comes from the Presidential Administration," she added.

Her lawyer said that a lawsuit will be filed based on these new discoveries.

In particular, Ismayilova expressed her outrage that the people who installed a hidden camera in her apartment have not been found. "My landlord Nuraddin Jafarov told me that an extra phone line was installed in my apartment in July 2011."

At the Automated Telephone Station #538, which set the line, we were told that they have nothing to do with it; it was done by the National Security Ministry, which has its room in this ATS," said Ismayilova.

The lawyer said that the filming in Khadija's apartment went on between July 7, 2011 and January 23, 2012. Cameras were placed in the bedroom and living room.

"None of this will make me abandon investigative journalism," said Ismayilova.
