Delay in hearing on Synterra's claim prevents implementation of Russia- Azerbaijan project
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 4 / Trend H.Valiyev /
The hearing on Synterra' claim against the Russian Supervision Commission in connection with the illegal delay in the construction of the Russia-Azerbaijan backbone is prolonged due to failure of procedural obligations by the Commission, Russia's national operator Sinterra's Spokesman Yekaterina Andreyeva told Trend by telephone from Moscow .
Andreyeva said the hearing on the case postponed to June 7 due to the fact that the defendant failed to comply with procedural obligations and did not sent in due time feedback on the statement of claim.
"The company sent claim with all the necessary documents to the court and the committee April 27. It seems that the defendant deliberately delaying the process," Andreyeva said.
After the decision to build trans-boundary fiber-optic backbone, Synterra received a building permit from the commission on federal relations and information technology. The next stage of approval was to be a permit for the design of transition from the Russian Supervision Commission, which refused Synterra to issue a formal conclusion referring to the letter of the Communication Ministry, which recommended to suspend the issuance of permits to allow for additional system project.
Azerbaijan appealed to Russia to speed up implementation of agreements on laying trans-boundary fiber-optic backbone between Russia and Azerbaijan, a company spokeswoman, she said earlier.
Synterra and Azerbaijan's Azertelekom implement a project on construction of trans-boundary fiber-optic backbone between the two countries in the area of Derbent (Dagestan) - Guba (Azerbaijan).
Today, the Russian part of the infrastructure is fully prepared to completion of the project. Sinterra laid more than 180 kilometers of primary and backup fiber-optic line from the site of its national backbone network in Makhachkala before entering the border area with the Russian side.
