PARLIAMENTARIAN’S LAWSUIT AGAINST ROAD POLICE AND AZTV NOT FULFILLED

September 11th, 2008
Today (11 September) the trial on the lawsuit of parliamentarian Bakhtiyar Sadigov against the Baku City Police Department, Baku City Road Police and Azerbaijan State Tele-radio Company (AZTV) ended in the Yasamal District Court, under the chairmanship of Judge Elchin Gurbanov.

Judge Gurbanov considered the lawsuit put forth by Bakhtiyar Aliyev unfounded and didn’t fulfill it.  

Recall that the road police regularly broadcast video footage of road violations in Baku on AZTV with commentary from Ramazan Mutallibov. Parliamentarian Aliyev's car was also shown during one of these programs. Aliyev, evaluating this as damaging to his honor and dignity, appealed to court. He demanded that AZTV and road police apologize and TV channel and each of police be fined 50,000 AZN for moral damages.
