    • In the absence of a COVID-19 passport or a medical contraindication certificate, to ensure the participation in court hearings of the persons subject to the preventive measures and administrative detention via the videoconferencing system. However, where this is not possible or where their presence at the court hearing in person is required, their direct participation shall be ensured, provided they strictly follow the sanitary-hygienic and medical-prophylactic rules;
    • In cases where defendants (except for persons in respect of whom the issue of preventive measures is being determined), the prisoners sentenced to imprisonment or life imprisonment and other participants of the court proceedings specified in Article 51-2.1 of the Criminal Procedure Code of the Republic of Azerbaijan do not have a COVID-19 passport or a medical contraindication certification and if their health condition makes it impossible for them to participate directly in the court proceedings, and in other cases provided for in Articles 51-2.1.1-51-2.1.4 of this Code, to give a priority to carry out procedural actions, as well as proceedings entirely or partially using the videoconferencing system;
    • To further ensure that judges, court staff and citizens comply with the use of protective masks, follow basic personal hygiene habits, exercise preventive medical care, as well as obey social distancing rules during their stay in the court facilities as well as during the discharge of any procedural requirements indoors;
    • To carry out necessary work for the regular disinfection of the courthouses and equip the office buildings with the protective and hygienic measures.
