Access to online information resources in Azerbaijan is regulated by law. This is included in the list of cases considered by courts in separate proceedings. Also, a local executive power is authorized to appeal to a court in case a piece of information prohibited from dissemination is published.
This is according to the latest amendments proposed to be made to the Code of Civil Procedure.
The amendments were tabled at the parliament’s plenary session on Friday.
According to draft amendment, a new paragraph (cases considered by courts in separate proceedings) is added to Article 305 of the Code of Civil Procedure.
To this end, 40-6 Paragraph (proceedings on cases that limit access to online information resources) is proposed to be annexed to the Code of Civil Procedure.
The articles of the new paragraph envisage the issuance of applications by relevant executive authorities in connection with proceedings, the contents of the applications and the adoption of a resolution, as well as other issues. Thus, when a relevant executive authority reveals dissemination of information prohibited by law on “Information, Informatization and Protection of Information”, it appeals to court to limit access to the internet information resource.
The draft law put to the vote and adopted.
