Azerbaijan has effective mechanism to combat corruption: prosecutor general
Azerbaijan has an effective mechanism to combat corruption, the country’s prosecutor general, Zakir Garalov, said on Tuesday.
He made the remarks at the 3rd meeting of heads of anti-corruption organizations and ombudsmen of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) member states, which kicked off in Baku June 6, APA reported.
Calling the ECO a ‘bridge’ connecting various cultures, Garalov noted that Azerbaijan actively participates in organization’s events.
He recalled that Azerbaijan has twice assumed the ECO Chairmanship.
Garalov noted that the fight against corruption is a priority for Azerbaijan, and the holding of this ECO event in Baku is an important event.
“As a result of the Armenian occupation, over a million of Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced. After Heydar Aliyev came to power, stability was ensured and legal reforms were conducted in the country. This course is successfully continued by President Ilham Aliyev”, he said.
Garalov said the strengthening of anti-corruption measures is in the limelight.
He added that Azerbaijan has joined all conventions of international and regional levels, improved legislation in this area, and established a working mechanism.
“Three national action plans have been realized in this area. The Commission on Combating Corruption and the Anti-Corruption Department under Prosecutor General are working in this area successfully. I’d also like to note the role of ASAN Service in combating corruption, which completely rules out corruption. ASAN Service is also offered to other countries on an international level. We can confidently say that we have an effective mechanism to combat corruption,” the prosecutor general said.
