The first president of Azerbaijan has returned home after a 20-year exile2012-07-09 13:21
Late on Saturday, July 7, the first president of Azerbaijan Ayaz Mutalibov returned to his homeland after a 20-year stay in Russia. Former president told the IA Regnum he was very grateful to the Head of State Ilham Aliyev, MPs, public figures, media and all those who had helped him return to his homeland.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Mutalibov's return to Azerbaijan was made possible due to the adoption of the Law "On status of ex-president", according to which the former heads of state are endowed with immunity from prosecution.
Earlier in a letter to supporters he said that the law was the result of political will of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. "This is an important step in the development of democracy, which cannot but have a positive impact on the domestic political environment. I wish there were more such steps, bringing the people together", the former president said.
As recalled by the NEWSru, previously Mutalibov was prosecuted in connection with events in January 1990, when the units of the Soviet army entered Baku, which led to numerous casualties, as well as attempts to organize a coup.
A year ago the Azerbaijani authorities allowed Mutalibov to come to Baku to attend the funeral of his son. At the same time Mutalibov visited the grave of former president Heydar Aliyev and noted his contribution to the strengthening of Azerbaijani statehood, as well as in his personal political career.
