It’s been more than two weeks since Leyla Mustafayeva saw her husband, a well-known Azerbaijani journalist Afgan Mukhtarli.

Mukhtarli, 43, went missing on May 29 in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, where the family has been living for two years, only to be found the next day in a jail in Azerbaijan.
