The proposed amendments will severely limit the independent activity of NGOs and in general puts the mere existence of the Civil Society in the country under a big question.
On June 8th the Presidential Office, without any public discussion, submitted amendments to the Law "On NGOs (Funds)" to the Parliament of Azerbaijan. On June 9th the Parliamentary Committee on Legal Policy (chaired by MP Ali Huseynov) in one day adopted the mentioned amendments. A session of the Parliament of Azerbaijan Republic is due on June 19th to approve the decision on introducing amendments to the Law "On NGOs (Funds)" and it is expected that the Parliament, which is totally controlled by executive power, will gladly accept the amendments which is similar to those that was passed in Belarus and Uzbekistan

brought against their founders (i.e. fine in for of Euro 50 000 and probably

● The NGO could be registered only after the confirmation given by Ministry

of Interior and Ministry of National Security.

● If an officially registered NGO does not have branches in one third of

administrative districts of Azerbaijani Republic, it will not be allowed to

hold any activities in the districts of the country.

permission from the government.

between Azerbaijan and their countries.
