Azerbaijan, Baku, July 21 / Trend K. Zarbaliyeva /
Azerbaijani Ombudsman urged the courts to protect the interests of children while considering the cases related to family problems.
"The courts must protect the interests of children while considering the cases related to family problems and pay attention to local and international regulations," Ombudsman Elmira Suleymanova said at a round table dedicated to improving the legal base to resolve the problems of Azerbaijani families
The event is held with the participation of the Ministry of Justice and the Supreme Court on the initiative of the State Committee for Family, Women and Children.
MP Ali Huseynli said that a woman as a representative of the fairer sex needs a humane approach.
"The Azerbaijani employment, family, criminal and civil legislation treats a woman with humanity," he said. "The Family Code has the provisions on concluding the marriage contract and passing medical examination by the parties before the marriage. The medical examination must be free. The criminal law prohibits the use of life sentence for the women who had serious crimes. It should be stressed that the Azerbaijani Parliament adopted the law "Domestic Violence" aimed at protecting women's rights."
