AvroMed`s general director has resigned


March 12, Fineko/abc.az. AvroMed Company LLC, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in Azerbaijan, has published a statement about the scandal in connection with the sale of medical masks at an inflated price. The husband of company’s general director Aziza Bakhshieva was involved in the scandal.

ABC.AZ informs with reference to the information distributed by AvroMed that a few days ago some news websites published reports that Riad Mammadov, the spouse of company’s general director, was among those involved in the investigation during the operation of law enforcement agencies against sellers of medical masks in Baku.

In this regard, AvroMed reported that entrepreneur Riad Mammadov did not carry out the sale of medical masks. The company is ready to cooperate with law enforcement agencies on the occasion. Bakhshieva officially submitted her resignation on 20 February 2020 and from this date until 6 March 2020 she was in the process of acceptance and delivery of goods.

Currently, there is no direct or indirect connection between Bakhshieva and AvroMed Company.

To prevent the spread of coronovirus infection, it is not enough for patients to use masks: you should often wash your hands, cover your mouth when coughing and sneezing, avoid close contact with anyone with cold and flu symptoms (coughing, sneezing, high fever), and be sure to contact medical institutions.
