April 26th, 2008
Recently video footage about “Azadlig” Newspaper Agil Khalil and Popular Front Party Ali Kerimli aroused discontent among parliamentarians.

According to Turan News Agency, Parliamentarian Jamil Hasanli assessed this footage as being against Azerbaijan’s national values. He said that what the channel showed is not in accordance with any ethics or broadcasting rules. J. Hasanli also said that in particular the population in Azerbaijan’s regions does not understand the real reason is for this footage.
“These types of campaigns invade houses and family, and are a blow to moral values,” said parliamentarian Sabir Rustemkhanli, chairman of Azerbaijan Citizens Solidarity Party. “Be it the printed press or the electronic press, I would want them to approach these values with respect.”
