New project of AYLU
Ombudsman law education

Dear friends,
We inform you that from November 2001 AYLU began to realize 6 months project by the financial support of the American Bar Association Central and East European Law Initiative (USAID funded).

In July 2001, the parliament of the Azerbaijan Republic (Milli Mejlis) adopted a draft law "On Human Rights Commissioner" in Azerbaijan (ombudsman) in third reading. The adoption of this law was one of the obligations put on Azerbaijan by Council of Europe.

The procedure of enacting constitutional laws differs from that of other laws. These laws must be considered twice. According to article 156 of Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic (Order of Adopting Additions to the Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic), additions to the Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic shall be adopted as Constitutional Laws in the Milli Mejlis of the Azerbaijan Republic by a majority of 95 votes. Constitutional Laws of the Azerbaijan Republic on Additions to the Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic shall be put to the vote at the Milli Mejlis of the Azerbaijan Republic twice. The second voting shall be held in 6 months after the first was held.

Constitutional Laws of the Azerbaijan Republic on Additions to the Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic shall be submitted to the President of the Azerbaijan Republic after the first as well as the second voting. The Constitutional Laws of the Azerbaijan Republic on Additions to the Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic shall come into force upon the President's signing them after the second voting.

At the Executive Board meeting of AYLU Board members were decided to conduct a campaign concerning ombudsman law education among the population. According to draft law, ombudsman defends human rights and freedoms, secures the respect of those values by governmental and municipal bodies and assists in restoration of the violated rights. During 10 days, the state officials must provide the human rights commissioner with necessary documents and materials. If necessary, in written form ombudsman may require to substantiate the disputable issue from state official. While investigating the complaint, the ombudsman has right to give a commission to the state bodies. The government officials, the commanders of military units, the heads of investigating isolators and places of confinements are obliged to give an audience to ombudsman.
