OBC contributed to the transnational campaign organized on occasion of the 40th brithday of Khadija Ismayilova, the Azeri investigative journalists imprisoned, by promoting the translation of her biographical page on Wikipedia. As part of the #Wiki4MediaFreedom project, implemented within the European Center for Press and Media Freedom, the multilingual Wikimedia community has been stimulated to translate the page devoted to Khadija Ismayilova into several different languages.

Within a few hours, several Wikipedians have responded to the call, translating the entry in Serbian, Armenian and Belarusian. It is a small improvement in the information available on the case of this brave journalist, who was released on 25th May 2016 from prison but continues to face serious obstacles in her work.
