13.12.2013 STATEMENT OF LEADER OF AZERBAIJAN LIBERAL PARTY, PROF. DR. LALA SHEVKET

On the eve of the funeral of the most famous political prisoner, legendary fighter for freedom and equality Nelson Mandela, when the whole world honours his memory, I call upon our government to honour his memory not in words but deeds - IMMEDIATELY FREE ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS IN AZERBAIJAN!

Such a step by the government could become not only historical on the way of the country`s democratisation, but also a symbolic act in these days connected to Mandela`s memory.

In today"s world, a state`s image is connected not to its energy resources or other economic factors, but to its HUMANISTIC REPUTATION. THIS IS PARAMOUNT!

A state cannot be called democratic if ...

11.04.2013 ALP LEADER LALA SHEVKET EXPRESSED HER CONDOLENCES ON THE DEATH OF MARGARET THATCHER

I would like to express to the British Government and all the people of the United Kingdom my most sincere condolences on the death of a great British political leader, former Prime-Minister, Baroness Margaret Thatcher.

It is clear that with her an entire era of modern political history is gone. Her legacy, however, is going to remain and will always be a source of inspiration for new generations of politicians regardless of their immediate ideological preferences, not only in the UK but all over the world.

Margaret Thatcher"s indomitable will, determination, commitment to democratic principles and ideals both at home and on the international stage have earned her universal admiration and deep respect. Even her opponents cannot help but admit her unique role in history and praise her for her achievements and strength of character, exemplified by the recent statements of the opposition in UK.

Margaret Thatcher has took her deserved place in the history of mankind.

May she rest in peace.

22.02.2011 STATEMENT OF AZERBAIJAN LIBERAL PARTY

Considering the aggravation of the situation in Libya Azerbaijan Liberal Party is obliged to make yet another statement concerning this matter.
The Libyan people have rightfully demanded the resignation of the dictator, Kaddafi, after 42 years of repression and destitution. The dictator, however, has not subordinated to the will of the people and instead answered them with police violence, weapons, even sending regular military troops against the peaceful demonstrators. Especially atrocious is the use of military aviation against the protesters. As the result hundreds of people have been killed and thousands have been injured.
Thus, the dictator, Kaddafi, has started genocide of his own people. The fact that the international community has not yet adequately reacted to this savagery is causing due amount of astonishment and dissatisfaction.
ALP urges the international community to support the rightful struggle of the Libyan people without delay.
ALP considers extremely important urgent meeting of the UN Security Council, which should take a definite decision in relation to the situation in Libya and deploy international peacekeeping troops in that country in order to prevent continuation of the genocide.
ALP considers it of an utmost importance and necessity that the dictator, Kaddafi, is brought to justice and prosecuted for the crimes against humanity in an international criminal tribunal.
