The lawmakers discussed the amendments and annexes to the Family Code and Law on Labor Pension. Chairman of the Committee Hadi Rajabli said the family Code amendment demands the couple to submit health certificate to the civil registry office before the marriage. He said there were some points in the legislation about this issue, and this amendment will give more seriousness and administrative character to the Code. “The medical check up before the marriage should be free. Another point of the law reads that if one of the sides conceals the fact of illness, another part can appeal the court to annul their marital contract”.

Rajabli said the civil registry offices should keep confidentiality of the health certificates of the people.

The committee chairman also informed about the amendments to the Law on Labor Pension. According to this amendment, families of the former judges can receive additional part of their pensions after their death.

The amendments and annexes were recommended to the parliament session after the discussions.
