Baku / 27.10.17 / Turan: President Ilham Aliyev signed an order to allocate AZN 15 million for the provision of population with water measuring devices.
In March 2016, the head of state allocated 12 million manat also from the state budget to the monopolist of water supply for all consumption groups for the same purposes. JSC Azersu bought and installed for the citizens 50,000 electronic and mechanical meters for these funds. In the course of the trial conducted at the lawsuit of Turan News Agency against Azersu OJSC it was found out that more than half of these funds were spent on installation of water meters. This confirms a high likelihood of corruption in this operation. However, this fact was not investigated in law enforcement agencies.
According to Azersu OJSC, as of January 1 of this year, only 66.9% of the population was provided with water measuring devices. -----08D--
