“Lapshİn’s arrest – a serİous lesson to those makİng İllegal vİsİts to occupİed Azerbaİjanİ lands”
The brining of Alexander Lapshin to justice in Azerbaijan is a serious lesson and message to those who make illegal visits to the occupied Azerbaijani lands, Samad Seyidov, chairman of the international and inter-parliamentary relations committee at Azerbaijan’s Parliament and head of the Azerbaijani Delegation to PACE, told APA on Wednesday.
Seyidov said the extradition of blogger Alexander Lapshin, who made illegal visits to the occupied Azerbaijani lands and made remarks against Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, has taken place in line with the rule of law, noting that Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity is unambiguously recognized and respected by the international community.
“The one, who has violated it, has violated the law. Everyone is equal before the law. Lapshin’s extradition to and arrest in Azerbaijan proves that our country accepts the supremacy of acting in accordance with international law,” he added.
