The parliament of Azerbaijan discusses amendments and alterations to the Law on freedom of assembly.
Rabiyat Aslanova, chairman of the parliamentary human rights commission, who introduced the draft amendments to the deputies, noted that the amendments are connected with processes, ongoing not only in Azerbaijan but also in the entire Europe.

She noted that the alterations are based on the Constitution of the country and the due international documents.

"In line with amendments, the meeting organizers shall notify the due executive body within five days before the meeting. Underage children can take part in the meeting only upon written consent of their children.

The due executive body shall respond to the meeting organizers regarding the conduction within no later than 3 days before the actions.

Courts shall consider the complaints of the meeting organizers within 2 days", said Aslanova.

She noted that alterations to the Law on Freedom of Assembly are adopted not due to external pressure but due to Azerbaijan's intention to liberalize the state of human rights.

The deputies went on discussing the amendments to the document.
