NGOs in Azerbaijan warned
Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 19
The Council on State Support to NGOs under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan plans to apply to law enforcement authorities for legal proceedings against NGOs that do not fulfill contractual commitments on projects' realization, Azay Guliyev, the chairman of the Council said Jan. 19.
He noted that the Council's task is to solve the problems of NGOs and assist them, but NGOs also should be aware of their responsibility.
"The only thing the Council wants NGOs to do - is to fulfill contractual obligations," Guliyev said. "Delays in reporting, or a large number of defects in them are unacceptable," Guliyev said.
Appeals to the law enforcement agencies will be taken in respect of such NGOs, he noted.
