Oppresive Aliyev Regime In Aberbaijan

EDM number 16 in 2017-19, proposed by Paul Flynn on 21/06/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Asia, Eastern Europe and Human rights.

That this House is appalled that the already dire situation of human right abuses in Azerbaijan has deteriorated further in the last six months; condemns the abduction and imprisonment of a journalist living in Georgia critical of the Azerbaijani Government on 29 May 2017; welcomes the European Parliament resolution that calls on the Azerbaijani authorities to drop charges against and unconditionally release Afgan Mukhtarl and all others jailed for expressing their fundamental rights; and calls on the Government to make representations on behalf of all who have fallen victim in their political imprisonment to the cruel and corrupt Aliyev regime.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
