Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev signed an order on September 11 to pardon blogger Alexander Lapshin .

The order comes into force from the date of signing.

Helped by his accomplices in the occupied territories, Lapshin paid a number of visits to Azerbaijan’s occupied lands, where he voiced support for "independence" of the illegal regime, and made public calls against Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territorial integrity.

The blogger was arrested in Minsk in late 2016 and transferred to Baku in February 2017.

On July 20, the Baku Court on Grave Crimes sentenced the blogger to three years of imprisonment on charges of his illegal visits to the Armenia-occupied Azerbaijani lands and a criminal conspiracy with the Armenians living there.
