Isa Gambar accuses the family of President Ilham Aliev of promoting corruption citing the purchase of villas in Dubai, the possession of mobile operator Azer Phone by the daughters of the president and other matters. The leader of the Azeri national Front Ali Kerimli also repeated these allegations mentioning that existing corruption is the product of a lack of state control. Among those who criticize the current Azeri systems there are mostly opposition representatives who are also upset about serious violations of human rights.
