Constitutional Court of Azerbaijan Received no Complaints on Violence against Women  Court Deputy Chairman

Most of the complaints received by the Constitutional Court of Azerbaijan are individual complaints about the resolutions of the same Court, the Deputy Chairman of the Constitutional Court, Sona Salmanova, informed Trend.

She stressed that the Constitutional Court receives appeals regarding mainly economical crimes, economical and property disputes and human rights. According to Salmanova, the Court has received no complaints about violence against women.

Salmanova underlined that the Constitutional Court has passed 44 resolutions regarding complaints made by the citizens about the court acts. Basically the Constitutional Court considers the questions linked with legal application of laws. As known, after the reforms of 2002, the citizens gained the right to make complaints to the Constitutional Court about the court acts. After this, the number of the resolutions passed on base of the complaints equals to 44. The Constitutional Court has a specific vision to the complaints. If the law was applied inaccurately in the resolutions of the initial court instances or irrelative law has been applied, the Constitutional Court recognizes these resolutions as illegal, Salmanova said.

She said that there are no complaints about the resolutions passed by the Constitutional Court because nobody may annul its resolutions.

The oppositional Musavat Party has prepared a complaint to the Constitutional Court on Baku City Executive Power, based on the issue that the rights for freedom of assembly are limited. Salmanova said that the Constitutional Court has no authority to pass a resolution regarding the activities of the Baku City Executive Power. If there are resolutions regarding court acts, we can annul it. We should receive request or appeal regarding complaint. After this, the Constitutional Court may consider the complaint. If they have complaints about the decision of the Baku City Executive Power, they may appeal, and the Constitutional Court will consider it and express its attitude, she said.
