“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats animals,” – Mahatma Gandhi said.
Recently, our law firm “Black Swan Consulting” LLC signed a Memorandum with the NGO “Mehr va Oqibat” (translated from uzbek as Mercy and Kindness), which works in the field of upholding the rights and justice for animals.
Within the framework of this Memorandum, BSC is ready to assist and participate in projects initiated by NGOs. Despite the fact that the specifics of our firm is consulting in the field of corporate and commercial law, intellectual property and compliance, we have shown full readiness to support this NGO in every possible way and advise them in individual cases, as well as work together with them to tighten responsibility for animal cruelty. To date, the maximum fine for animal abuse is about $65. The criminal code of the Republic of Uzbekistan does not provide responsibiity for this act.
As part of this cooperation, we have already helped this NGO to bring to justice the person who shot the cat. As a result, the person was brought to justice and the court imposed (https://uznews.uz/ru/article/25760) a fine of $46.
Managing partner of the company – Amir Akhmedov is one of the oldest NGO volunteers, and was there at the time when the society was just emerging.
We hope that our cooperation and our work will be effective and will bring benefits to society
