 Criminal case launched against Armenian footballers for insulting Azerbaijani flag

Demonstrating its aggressive nature once again, Armenia’s military-political leadership, in a gross violation of the fundamental norms and principles of international law, continues its provocative actions against Azerbaijan.

Some media outlets and various social media pages have published videos of Armenian footballers insulting the Azerbaijani national flag, the Prosecutor General's Office of Azerbaijan told AzVision.az.

The Prosecutor General's Office has initiated a criminal case on the incident under articles 283.2.3 (incitement of national, racial, social, or religious hatred and enmity by an organized group) and 324 (insulting actions on the State Flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan or the State Emblem of the Republic of Azerbaijan) of the Criminal Code of Azerbaijan.

By sending petitions for legal assistance in the case, the necessary measures will be taken to identify and bring to justice the perpetrators together with the prosecutor's offices of other countries, as well as relevant government agencies.
