2017-19 Session
That this House is appalled that the already dire situation of human right abuses in Azerbaijan has deteriorated further in the last six months; condemns the abduction and imprisonment of a journalist living in Georgia critical of the Azerbaijani Government on 29 May 2017; welcomes the European Parliament resolution that calls on the Azerbaijani authorities to drop charges against and unconditionally release Afgan Mukhtarl and all others jailed for expressing their fundamental rights; and calls on the Government to make representations on behalf of all who have fallen victim in their political imprisonment to the cruel and corrupt Aliyev regime.
