Zhala Bayramova and Oleksandra Matviichuk Discuss Dr. Gubad Ibadoghlu’s Efforts and Arrest at World Liberty Congress


In today’s world, speaking out against injustice is more important than ever. Whether it’s a fight for freedom of speech, human rights, or environmental activism, those who dare to take a stand are often met with opposition and anger. However, it is through these struggles that change is made and justice is achieved. One such story is that of Zhala Bayramova and her fight for her father’s freedom. Zhala recently met with Nobel Peace Prize winner Oleksandra Matviichuk to discuss her father’s arrest and poor health. Their conversation focused on her father’s efforts to expose the Azerbaijan-Russia oil and gas deals that were impacting sanctions.

Dr. Gubad Ibadoghlu, Zhala’s father, is a prominent Azerbaijani economist who has spent his career fighting against corruption and advocating for democracy. However, his mission has not been without challenges. June 2023, he was arrested for money counterfeiting. During the following months, he endured adverse health conditions and was denied adequate medical treatment.

Despite the challenges, Zhala has been vocal in her support for her father’s release and has used her platform to raise awareness about his case. She has been working tirelessly to spread the word about her father’s plight and to hold those responsible for his arrest accountable. Through her efforts, she has highlighted the importance of speaking out against injustice, even in the face of adversity.

In addition to speaking out against her father’s case, Zhala has also been an advocate for human rights and freedom of speech in Azerbaijan. She has worked with various organizations to promote these values and support those who are fighting for these causes.

Despite the challenges and risks, the importance of speaking out against injustice cannot be overstated. Those who take on this fight are often met with hostility and pushback, but it is through their efforts that change is made and justice is achieved. Whether it’s advocating for environmental protections, promoting human rights, or fighting against corruption, those who speak out are making a difference in the world.

In conclusion, Zhala Bayramova’s fight for her father’s freedom is a shining example of the importance of speaking out against injustice. Through her efforts, she has shed light on the need for transparency and accountability, and has shown that the power of change lies in the voices of those who dare to take a stand. We stand with Zhala in her mission to free her father and to promote human rights and democracy in Azerbaijan and around the world.
