Establishment of Garabagh Committee at Azerbaijani Parliament, adoption of law “About genocide” proposed
- 13 March 2020
“It is necessary to include in the Legislative Works Plan of the spring session the law about the occupied lands”, the member of the Parliament Elman Mammadov said in a statement during the discussion of the legislative works plan of the spring session at the plenary meeting of the Azerbaijani Parliament held today, APA reports.
E. Mammadov said at the same time, the Garabagh Committee should be established in the Parliament: “Although our people have been repeatedly subjected to genocide, we still haven’t adopted a law “About genocide”. It is true that the internally displaced person receives allowance due to his (her) status of internally displaced person. But there are quite a large number of inconsistencies in the relevant decision of the Cabinet of Ministers. These inconsistencies should be eliminated”.
The member of the Parliament noted that either closed or open debates should be held in the Parliament regarding solution of Garabagh conflict: “This issue should be included in the Legislative Works Plan of the Azerbaijani Parliament”.
The member of the Parliament also proposed to change the working mode in the Parliament: “The meeting should either start at 11:00 a.m. and end at 13:00 p.m. or start at 10:00 a.m. and end at 12:00 a.m.”.
