annually 1 October prosecutors Azerbaijan Republic solemnly celebrate their professional holiday.
The celebration of this day is caused by historical necessity. The President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev 17 July in 1998 signed an executive order on October 1 the professional holiday of workers of the Prosecutor's Office of Azerbaijan Republic based on the fact that the decision of the Council of Ministers of the Azerbaijan Republic on October 1, 1918 as part of the Baku District Court started operating prosecutors.
In contrast, the judiciary, the existence of which in many states is known since ancient times, the prosecutor's office as an independent institution came much later.
The history of the prosecution in the independent state of Azerbaijan starts from the date of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic. November 18, 1918 by the Council of Ministers approved the "Regulations on the Trial Chamber of Azerbaijan."
After restoring of the state independence of Azerbaijan in 1991, the Republic has entered a new period. However, in the early years of independence during the reign of the APF (PPFA), internal strife, anarchy and chaos that engulfed the whole country, is doing great harm to the nation-building.
After the return to power of Heydar Aliyev in the work of the prosecutor's office began a new period. During this period, namely the staff of the prosecution were professionally investigated such serious criminal events as a crime against an independent state, the terrorist attacks committed against prominent public figures and statesmen, misappropriation of state property, serious criminal acts committed in the banking and financial system (including mass appropriation savings of ordinary citizens), and the guilty are punished.
There have been prevented an attempted coup and the military coup in October 1994 and March 1995. In the investigation of criminal cases on these events particularly distinguished group of prosecutors.
