Article on insulting Elbasy removed from Criminal Code of Kazakhstan

Astana. May 31. KazTAG - The article on insulting Elbasy is removed from the Criminal Code, because such a status no longer exists, deputy Snezhanna Imasheva said.

“...This is within the framework of the amendment that was adopted in the Constitution and articles that mention Elbasy and his powers. As a result, these amendments are no longer valid. These articles are no longer needed in the Criminal Code, there is no need for them, because the status of Elbasy does not exist anymore. Therefore, criminal liability, of course, is no longer needed and will not be applied,” - Imasheva said on the sidelines of the Mazhilis on Wednesday.

Thus, laws in Kazakhstan are brought into line with the Constitution, the deputy explained.
