Press Review 07/14/2016

The period of the Aliyev power, the minimum wage, the state of courts and the bad loans are the leading topics of today’s press.

The official newspaper Azerbaijan published an article dedicated to two separate periods of reign of Heydar Aliyev. In 1969, the Kremlin appointed Heydar Aliyev as the leader of Azerbaijan. The author believes that from that moment began the prosperity of Azerbaijan, according to the highest criteria of progress and spirituality and all because of the "great Azerbaijani Heydar Aliyev."

The second rise to power in the already independent Azerbaijan took place in 1993. The whole article is full of praise and pathetic statements about Heydar Aliyev, as all the achievements of the country belong to him.

Azadlig quotes the economist-expert Samir Aliyev that in all CIS countries, except Azerbaijan, the minimum wage increased. In Russia, in particular, from July 1, the minimum wage is $ 117 – 7,500 rubles.

In May and June, the minimum wage was raised in Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova respectively.

In Armenia currently the minimum wage is 115 dollars. The government there increased the minimum wage to 136 dollars from July 1, as well as in neighboring Georgia.

As for the countries of Central Asia, the minimum wage has increased since the beginning of 2016.

The author notes that the minimum salary in Azerbaijan last increased three years ago, on September 1, 2013 and amounted to 105 manats. At the time this figure was equal to 134 dollars. After the last devaluation the minimum wage in the country is 68 dollars.

Novoye Vremya has published an article entitled: "When will justice become the norm?" The author has criticized the current situation of justice because the court system is used just for punishment. Administration of justice means the triumph of justice based on the laws and regulations. But when the judicial system is used as a sword, the rule of law is forgotten with all the ensuing consequences.

The overarching aim of the modernization of the judiciary should be the construction of an independent judiciary in Azerbaijan. Only in this case, the justice we will no longer be empty words and will become the norm.

Bizim Yol discusses relationship between citizens and banks with the expert Akram Hasanov. The expert says the country needs a law "On Bankruptcy". In the case of the adoption of the law, a person who is not really in a position to repay the debt, is declared bankrupt and is no longer required to repay the debt. At the same time, that person is no longer able to borrow in the next 3-5 years. Information about this and the name of the person should be released through the Internet. He also considers important appointment of the Financial Ombudsman in Azerbaijan. The expert argues that bad loans in the majority are not returned by the families of heads of the banks, their friends, etc. And the banks do not demand debts from these people and do not turn to the courts, respectively.
