The journalist's lawyer Adil Ismailov in his concluding remarks, said that during the trial defense denied all the charges and evidence.

However, Ghazi said that his arrest was ordered by Ilham Aliyev, and head of the administration Mehdiyev for what programs "Azerbaijani hour", he denounced the crimes of the government. After the meeting, the judge announced the verdict: Hazy found guilty under article 221.3 (hooliganism) and received 5 years of imprisonment with the content in jail. Hasanov was sentenced to total six months of imprisonment under the same article. Earlier, the prosecutor asked to sentence Ghazi to six years in prison, and Hasanov to nine months in prison.

On 29 August, 2014 at a bus stop Muharram came up to Hasanov, and insulted him. Then he attacked Hazi and began to beat him. For his own protection, Hazy hit the assailant with a bottle in his hand.
