“Ali Insanov and Eynulla Fetullayev are not political prisoners. Opposition newspapers always regarded Ali Insanov corrupt official. Now they defend him,” Rabiyyat Aslanova, parliamentarian, chief of parliament’s commission on human rights said, APA reports.
According to Rabiyyat Aslanova, ex-health minister Ali Insanov can not be regarded as political prisoner.
“Eynulla Fetullayev’s trial and arrest was legal. He was arrested for insulting Khojaly residents, not for his activity. Therefore there is no need to make agiotage,” she said.
Aslanova does not see any need for establishing a committee to defend Eynulla Fetullayev’s rights.
“Why wasn’t such a committee established to defend the rights of Khojaly residents? I think that Khojaly residents are right. Eynulla Fetullayev insulted their honor and dignity. Everybody has the right to prevent any action insulting his honor and dignity legally,” he said.
Aslanova noted that the arrest of editor-in-chief cannot be regarded as pressure on freedom of speech. /APA/
