  • On May 14, 2012 the Chairman of the Supreme Court Mr. Ramiz Rzayev met with the Secretary General of the International Association of Prosecutors Mr. Derk Kuipers.

    During the meeting the Chairman of the Supreme Court spoke about judicial system of Azerbaijan, structure and activity of the Supreme Court and also noted that Azerbaijan successfully cooperated with many developed countries by international organizations in the legal sphere. The European Continental Judicial system is applied in our country. The International legal acts, particularly the provision of the European Convention “for the Protection of human rights and freedoms”, a case law of the European Court of Human rights are studied carefully and refer to. The decided adjudications are coordinated with the European standards. The latest information technologies are used in the judicial system.

    Chairman of the Supreme Court stated that Azerbaijan with its population was a country where the lowest number of crimes registered. The occupation of 20 percent of Azerbaijani territory by Armenia makes the operation of military courts more necessary.

Azerbaijan with its 200 individual members provides us with greater support. Web Site of the Association helps millions of prosecutors to communicate with each other easily. The joint fight of the International Association of Prosecutors and Office of Public Prosecutor of the Republic of Azerbaijan against the transnational crime, particularly drug trafficking, money-laundering and fraud is necessary and this fight will lead to more effective results in future. The Secretary General of the International Association of Prosecutors familiarized with an administrative building of the Supreme Court and working conditions of judges.
