To say something about the legal processing course is to influence this course, reportedly said chief of public policy department with Presidents Administration Ali Hasanov, commenting on court verdict on leaders of youth organization Yeni Fikir.
OSCE Baku office and US Embassy issued statements in this respect showing their concern with this verdict. Hasanov said the process is not complete yet. В"Prisoners at the bar may submit an appeal and their case can be revised in the next instance. Therefore, it is not fair to share opinion on this caseВ", said Hasanov.
Speaking on government-opposition relations, in particular oppositions statements that government wants to split Mussavat up, Hasanov said the government is not interested in weakening or splitting the party. В"Azerbaijan is a democratic state with political pluralism and democratic principles. In this connection, we would love Mussavt party exist based on actual democracy principles, not turning into a monopoly; we want reasonable-thinking people to rule the party and we want the party to form a reasonable ideas linked to Azerbaijans developmentВ", he concluded.
