- 19 June 2020
“The leader of the country and the first Vice-president take constant care of martyrs’ families”, said vice-speaker Adil Aliyev at the meeting of the Azerbaijani Parliament held today, APA reports.
He said our martyrs and war veteran sacrificed their lives being the greatest value for a human being for the sake of eternal waving of the tricolor flag: “The issue that concerns us is that some persons moved off from patriotic feelings use on social networks and mass media the disagreeable expressions regarding our martyrs. There is a special clause in the Criminal Code regarding the defamation of persons. And the aforementioned actions are quite painful. Such offensive expressions cause double sufferings to martyrs’ families. I propose to add to the Criminal Code a special clause regarding the protection of honor and dignity of the martyred persons”.
The deputy also commented on the issue of extension of the quarantine regime: “For timely responding to the appeals made to us regarding extension of the period of the quarantine regime, we should raise these issues timely in front of the concerned state agencies. If we raise the issues mentioned in the appeals made to us in front of the concerned state agencies, there wouldn’t be so many problems in our country”.
