There are no political prisoners in Azerbaijan, said Siyavush Novruzov, MP, deputy executive secretary of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP).

 

Addressing a plenary session of the parliament on Friday, Novruzov said that certain media outlets in Azerbaijan disseminate erroneous information.

 

“I once again state that there are no political prisoners in Azerbaijan. The policy of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party is that no one is prosecuted for political views,” he noted.

 

He noted that being a member of NAP or another party doesn’t insure any person from responsibility for a committed crime.

 

Expressing his attitude to the topic, Speaker of the Parliament Ogtay Asadov, in his turn, noted that certain media outlets in Azerbaijan commit some distortions.
