A 2-day regional conference of the South Caucasus countries on the topic of justice and supremacy of law in South Caucasus started on 19-20 November in Tbilisi.
The major topic of the discussion is Justice and Legal State in South Caucasus - Successes and Problems of Justice.
Vilayat Zahirov, the Deputy Justice Minister of Azerbaijan, in particular, said: “Major problem while holding reforms in this field is the Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan, he stressed. “As a result, more than 20% of the Azerbaijani territory has been occupied and more than one million citizens have become internally displaced people. Courts and other state institutions were replaced to other regions and consequently, it was impossible to hold comprehensive analysis and to determine scope of work of these courts in the regions.”
Azerbaijan pays a special attention to formation of independent juridical system and reforms in the justice field, which serve achievement of supremacy of law, Mr. Zahirov emphasized.
