Baku. Mubariz Aslanov - APA. “Courts should take into account property status while imposing punishments for the participants and organizers of the unauthorized protests,” member of the Azerbaijani parliament’s committee on legal policy and state-building, author of the draft law on increasing fines for unauthorized protests Rafael Jabrayilov told APA.

The parliamentarian said the recent amendments confirmed three types of reprimands regarding the organizers and participants of the unauthorized protests.

“One of them is AZN 300-600 fine, the second public works from 160 up to 200 hours, the third administrative arrest up to 15 days. Property status should be taken into account while passing judgment on these persons. According to article 44.2 of the Criminal Code, the court is to take into consideration the property status while imposing punishment, otherwise it can cause problems for the judge. The law requires it: if the person’s property status does not enable to pay the fine, administrative arrest and public works can be imposed,” he said.

Large fines were imposed on those who were detained in the recent protests, including yesterday’s unauthorized protest.
