Day of the prosecutors of Azerbaijan (01/10)

Every year on October 1, employees of the Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan solemnly celebrate their professional holiday.

The celebration of this day is due to historical necessity. On July 17, 1998, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Heydar Aliyev, signed a decree on holding a professional holiday for employees of the prosecutor's office of the Republic of Azerbaijan on October 1, based on the fact that by the decision of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan dated October 1, 1918, the prosecutor's office began to operate as part of the Baku District Court.

Unlike the judiciary, the existence of which in many states has been known since ancient times, the prosecutor's office as an independent institution arose much later.
