I.Alizade / MP Fazil Gazanfarogli , of Azerbaijan Parliament's Disciplinary Committee, stated on 18 May that MP Huseyi Abdullayev, who has been sentenced to a suspended term of imprisonment, cannot continue his MP activity in accordance with the Azerbaijan legislation.

The MP was charged in accordance with the Articles 221.2 (hooliganism) and 128 (intentional damage to health).

The MP immunity of Abdullayev was liquidated in accordance with the request of the Procurator General at the extraordinary meeting of the Parliament on 19 March and the MP was arrested the same day.

Due to the incident by the decision of the Disciplinary Commission of the Parliament, Fazil Agamali was rebuked.
