In connection with today's fire in the 16-storey residential building, which caused the death of 10 people, the authorities are taking preventive measures. Turan has learned from informed sources that in Baku there are 800 residential units covered by such "flammable" facing. Facing is of four kinds, and they burn at a given temperature. The executive branch of the capital has ordered to begin the dismantling of the first floors of all buildings, and have ready trucks with water to extinguish a possible fire. Removing the facing of above floors will be made later, after European games.
The investigating authorities will be engaged in the investigation of who ordered and authorized facing the buildings by these materials. The perpetrators will be prosecuted.
As for the causes of fire, under the current version the sabotage version is unlikely. In any case, the statement of the public prosecutor that the cause of the fire is a poor quality cladding, testifies many things.
These works were performed by "Global Construction." Who is supplier of such facing is not yet clear. According to some reports, this company was a partner of the World Bank.
However, the interesting thing is who owns the company? According to informed sources, the owner of the company is a husband of the daughter of a very high-ranking officials of Azerbaijan.
As often happens in such cases, the owners of such firms, the owners of such firms quickly change their founders, and avoid liability. Therefore, it is interesting how the leadership of the country will behave in this case – will it give a principled assessment of the event or find a "scapegoat"? The answer will be known soon.
