Quotes

"I'm going back to Baku because it is my home and I will not let people kick me out of my home" she said
"If Mr James wants to leave then that is a matter for him, but I believe no more public money should be paid out for his departure."
The Human Rights Committee added that "In any event, a public interest in the subject matter of the criticism should be recognized as a defence. Care should be taken by States parties to avoid excessively punitive measures and penalties. ( . . . ) States parties should consider the decriminalization of defamation and, in any case, the application of the criminal law should only be countenanced in the most serious of cases and imprisonment is never an appropriate penalty." (para. 47)
