The centralized registration of war veterans and persons, who have been granted the status of martyrs and families of the martyrs, will be kept at the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of Azerbaijan, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Azernews.
The relevant decisions are included within the “Procedure for maintaining the register of persons who have been granted the status of martyrs and families of martyrs” and the “Procedure for maintaining the register of war veterans” approved by the Cabinet of Ministers.
The decisions were made in order to ensure the implementation of the decrees of the Azerbaijani president dated June 17, 2021.
The main purpose of the registration is to create a unified information database about martyrs, their family members, disabled people, and war veterans, as well as the automatic collection, processing, storage, and search of relevant information about them.
