NOVO-OGAREVO, October 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin urged Russian business ombudsmen to restore the violated rights, but not to lobby the interests of business. Meanwhile, the president noted that the business rights commissioners should not replace the courts.
“I would like the ombudsmen not to lobby the interests of business and protect those who actually violate the law, but to restore the violated rights of businesspeople,” Putin said at a meeting with the business rights commissioners and the leadership of the law enforcement agencies and the courts on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the president noted that a system for the protection of the rights of businesspeople that is being created should contribute to the foresaid task. “All instruments, panels, which you are creating, should not replace the courts,” he noted.
Putin noted that the business ombudsmen “have something to work on.” He emphasized that the investment climate in the country depends particularly from these activities. “Without settlement of this task we cannot ensure a good pace of economic growth,” he underlined.
