Guiding Case Law:

In May 2001 Tajikistan increased state control over mining and trading of precious stones and metals in hopes of boosting the economy. Parliament amended the Law on Precious Metals and Stones on May 6 to give the state greater control over the country's natural wealth and make it a priority in developing the economy. The law increases control over the accounting, production, storage and transportation of the country's precious metals and stones.
