Management authority of prosecutors to combat corruption expanded
The Milli Mejlis of Azerbaijan submitted draft amendments to the laws "On Prosecutor's Office" and "On the performance of duty in the prosecution."
The amendments are aimed at improving the status and authority of Directorate for Combating Corruption under the Prosecutor General.
According to the General Prosecutor Zakir Garalov , this department, in line with its status as a specialized body for combating corruption, will have the power of the Chief Directorate. Its head at the same time will become chief deputy attorney general. In addition, the qualification degrees of the Deputy Chief of Chiefs and heads of new offices will increase.
The number of employees of the chief department, including prosecutors, investigators, detectives and technicians, wil also increase.
All this, according to Garalov , will promote effective fighting of the structure against corruption..—06D--
