Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 14
Legal proceedings will be launched against organizers and executors of anti-Azerbaijan campaign, said Azerbaijani President's Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov.
Hasanov made the remarks commenting on the acquittal decision of an Italian court regarding Luca Volonte, the former chair of the European People's Party group in PACE, who was accused of corruption ties with Azerbaijan.
The Feb. 13 decision of the Milan court confirmed that information disseminated through a structure called Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), established in mid-2017 for opaque and well-known purposes upon order of anti-Azerbaijan networks and centers, is unfounded and biased, and also confirmed that this is aimed at tarnishing Azerbaijan's healthy international image, Hasanov said.
