Azerbaijan, Baku, June 20 / Trend A. Hasanov /
The Customs Union (CU) countries can create a single anti-monopoly body, similar to that existing in the EU Commission, head of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia Igor Artemyev told media within the conference on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the
Azerbaijani Anti-Monopoly Service today.
He said that the countries of the Customs Union stand for creating a single anti-monopoly legislation and the Customs Code within the Customs Union. The Interstate Council of the Antimonopoly Services may soon attract Interpol to investigate the activity of international
cartels, Artemyev said.
He also stressed that the countries included in the Interstate Council on Antimonopoly Policy of CIS countries, have many similarities in the legislative framework and member states must assist each other.
"The staff on the joint investigation has been operating for five years," he said. "The countries combine their efforts in the fight against crime, in particular, regarding the protection of competition. Azerbaijan is also its participant."
