"The law establishes a framework for the investigation of domestic violence complaints, defines a process to issue restraining orders, and calls for the establishment of a shelter and rehabilitation center for survivors. Some critics of the domestic violence law asserted that a lack of clear implementing guidelines reduced its effectiveness. Female members of the Milli Mejlis and the head of the State Committee for Family, Women, and Children Affairs (SCFWCA) continued their activities against domestic violence. The committee conducted public awareness campaigns and worked to improve the socioeconomic situation of domestic violence survivors. Women had limited recourse against assaults by their husbands or others, particularly in rural areas"more

"The Special Rapporteur regrets that no information was shared by State authorities as regards prosecution and punishment of perpetrators of violence against women. However, according to the vast majority of interviewees, the conviction rate is very low and this contributes to the lack of trust in the judicial system"

"Other obstacles regarding the criminal justice system, as highlighted in interviews, include prosecutors and judges using inappropriate language, displaying discriminatory attitudes, perpetuating gender based stereotypes towards victims, and using reconciliation remedies, even when it is inappropriate. The latter was also used as grounds for termination of court proceedings. Various interviewees stated that courts tend to systematically use the reconciliation provisions of the Criminal Code and the Domestic Violence Law when defendants are first time offenders, without thorough consideration of the victim’s opinion regarding reconciliation, safety, and other conditions required under the law"

"In Azerbaijan, the main challenges relating to the investigation, prosecution and punishment of perpetrators for acts of violence against women are largely due to the minimal implementation and enforcement of the legal framework but also the lack of a gender perspective by law enforcement and judicial operators. The common resort to mediation as a means of dispute resolution is also a factor. Deeply rooted patriarchal attitudes regarding cases of violence against women, by police, judicial officers, other relevant civil servants as well as community leaders and families, contribute significantly to the underreporting of cases. The Rapporteur also noted the low number of women working in the criminal justice sector as...more

"Regarding protection orders, the Law provides for short-term 30 day and long-term 180-day protection orders for victims of domestic violence, whether the case is of a civil or criminal nature. However, considering that long-term protection orders can only be issued if and when perpetrators violate a short-term order, and that local executive bodies rarely issue short-term orders, courts rarely issue long-term protection orders. According to the information provided by the Ministry of Justice, courts issued three long-term protection orders in 2013. The process and mechanism through which local executive bodies are competent to issue short-term protection orders is not in operation as yet. throughout her visit, the Special Rapporteur was...more

"The Law on Prevention of Domestic Violence also refers to the collection of statistical information in several articles, and specifically refers to the establishment of a domestic violence databank with information on occurrence of cases, complaints made to State bodies, examinations of cases and their results, inter alia, as a main preventive action. Despite these provisions, at the time of the Special Rapporteur’s visit, the extent of the phenomenon was difficult to assess, due to a significant lack of disaggregated data, the limited reliability of the information, the significant underreporting of cases, and the lack of a centralised information system to monitor the various manifestations of violence against women"more

"The Special Rapporteur is of the view that the activities carried out in order to prevent violence against women cannot be considered as effective and coordinated. The efforts towards societal transformation, which would address traditional gender roles, and stereotypes that continue to limit the personal, social, economic, and political freedom of women in Azerbaijan are limited. Although, some sporadic awareness-raising activities were undertaken, sustained prevention strategies, including with all concerned stakeholders, in particular women, children, men, community and religious leaders is crucial"

"Despite significant positive developments, interviewees consistently raised the lack of or limited implementation of laws and policies. The Special Rapporteur noted that this was the norm despite the existence of implementation mechanisms and strategies that provide a framework for action. Accountability is a crucial aspect in the effective prevention and elimination of violence against women, but the Rapporteur observed that impunity seemed to be the norm for crimes committed against women"

"The Special Rapporteur noted with concern that the law does not fully criminalize domestic violence, but rather establishes that only those complaints, which “contain elements of composition of crime”, will be reviewed under the criminal procedure legislation. 'Relevant executive authorities' will review complaints that are deemed not to contain such elements; and such complaints will only be investigated with the consent of the victim or his (her) legal representative. The law perse does not distinguish which acts of domestic violence will be subject to criminal prosecution and which will not"

"Article 5.1 of the Domestic Violence Law stipulates that if complaints of domestic violence contain information about committed or premeditated crimes, then these should be reviewed 'in the manner defined in the criminal procedure legislation'. However, the Criminal Procedural Code itself has no provisions that specifically deal with the needs, rights, or special situation of victims of domestic violence. The Domestic Violence Law itself does impose different obligations on the actors in charge of criminal procedure however it does not specify which of these actors are responsible for which of the listed duties.

"During its monitoring of criminal proceedings involving domestic violence, the trial monitors have recorded cases such as: A prosecutor mentioning a proverb extolling the benefits of domestic violence to a victim; A judge telling a victim that her words and behaviour in the courtroom showed that she was 'as guilty as her husband'; and A judge trying to convince a victim to proceed with a hearing in closed session, using the reasoning that since she was a woman, some of the facts to be investigated in the trial would be “shameful” for her"

"Since the start of our operation in 2009, our NGO managed only once to enlist law’s support and get protection order issued by the court. And indeed we were pioneers in receiving the protection order stipulated in the law. But unfortunately, we faced inefficiency of the protection order. Simply put, nobody knew how to implement the law and even the judge who issued the order had confessed that this protection order was ineffective and groundless. And despite the availability of the protection order woman was again brutally beaten by her husband in a public space. The batterer wasn’t prosecuted and it’s with regret that the existence of the protection order...more
