on the edge of the Caspian Sea, corruption is a local specialty. The Aliev family, which reigns in Baku, has made it a widespread system to buy respectability with Western democracies.

ARTE - Tuesday, September 28 at 8:50 pm - Documentary

at the Aliev, Azerbaijan, we love power. Absolute and without opposition preferably. Having become independent in 1991, the former Soviet Republic by the Caspian Sea was headed for more than ten years by Heydar Aliev. In 2003, at his death, his son Ilham succeeds him. Since then, the latter has been re-elected three times (2008, 2013, 2018) as President, after faken elections. Political prisoners inside, flourishing affairs with the Western powers outside, thanks in particular to oil money, Ilham Aliev plays on all paintings.

Ten years after this consecration, she tells an amazing anecdote on the after-party in C to you. Leïla Bekhti is one of the actresses that seduce most in France in recent years.

to maintain power and prosper, buy an image of respectability with Western democracies, the Aliev family practices what is called "Caviar diplomacy" (luxury dishes whose country is one of the main producers). European parliamentarians invited to monitor and "validate" the elections are overpayed. Feats like Lady Gaga or Jennifer Lopez come to Baku and pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars. International sports competitions are organized to show the world that the country knows how to receive.

This documentary divided into two parts to the explicit titles (the power of money and the march for corruption), signed Benoît Bringer and Laurent Richard, details this vast system of corruption. In 2015, Laurent Richard had already completed an investigation (my president is on a business trip) on the strange relations between some French elected officials and the uncomfortable regime of Ilham Aliev.

Christoph Strässer, rapporteur at the time, tells how dozens of European parliamentarians, suddenly mobilized, voted against this report. Aliev's money is visibly more effective than the love of democracy ...

precious alert launcher came from within System, Arif Mammadov, former diplomat at the Council of Europe, decided to speak. He explains how, from 2010, the plan has set up a sophisticated money laundering structure. And stresses that the plan has 30 million euros to corrupt European politicians. After years of silence, international investigations lead to convictions, such as the Italian Conservative Parliamentarian Luca Wish or his German colleague Eduard Lintner, corrupted by the Baku regime.

In January 2020, a second report on political prisoners is finally adopted by the Council of Europe. In March of that same year, 38 of them are released by power. To date, 14 members of the Council of Europe have been excluded for life following the revelations made in 2017 by the world and ten other European publications. The "caviar connection" is still far from dismantled.
