Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Prosecutor General's press services report

In recent years, due to the successful continuation by President Ilham Aliyev of the strategic development policy of the national leader Heydar Aliyev the country's dynamic development is meeting the future with confidence. Great strides to ensure human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the rights of persons who are engaged in business activities and to establish democracy have been made due to progressive reforms covering all spheres of social and economic life.

Great opportunities have been created by the government for free entrepreneurs, physical individuals and legal entities represented in all kinds of business structures and the legal framework has been established in order to protect their rights in various sectors of the economy. Thus, impermissibility of abuse of entrepreneurship by government employees misusing their official authorities, as well as the factors hindering the development of market relations and inappropriate interventions is reflected in the Presidential Decree on the "Prevention of interventions that hinder the development of entrepreneurship," dated 28 September 2002, as well as the Law of the Azerbaijan Republic on the "Regulation of business inspections and the protection of the interests of entrepreneurs” dated July 2, 2013 and in other relevant legal documents. However, we ought to express regret that in recent years, some fraudsters who introduced themselves as employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations deceived individual entrepreneurs and put pressure on them under the name of inspection by giving way to the illegal actions impeding the normal process of the business. Doing all counted during their alleged inspections and interventions they don’t even hesitate to threat entrepreneurs by closing their facilities and asking money instead. Reports of such evidences are still being received. Relevant measures are taken to discover such cases in time and do necessary against these persons in accordance with the law.
