Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan.26 / Trend , M.Aliyev /
A public committee to protect the rights of the "Cuban Five" will be created in Azerbaijan on the initiative of Azerbaijani People's Socialist Party (NSPA).
"During a meeting with Cuban Ambassador, representatives of the People's Socialist Party of Azerbaijan (NSPA) informed the diplomat about their decision to establish an independent public committee to protect the rights of the famous 'Cuban Five'- five Cuban citizens illegally arrested in the U.S. in 1998 and sentenced long-term prison on unfounded accusations," the party said.
At the moment, there are over 130 public committees protecting the rights of the five Cubans and trying to force American authorities to cancel the sentence.
NSPA Deputy Chairman Ibrahim Asadli was elected as chairman of the independent public committee.
