DATE OF NEXT MEETING OF WORKING GROUP ON RELEASING OF PRISONERS UNKNOWN
The holding of the meeting of the Working Group on PrisonersвЂ™ Problems on 16 September under the chairmanship of Ali Husseynova, the chairman of the Legislation Commission of the Milli Majlis (Parliament), is still questionable. вЂњThe date of the meeting will be determined in the end of the day, Murad Sadeddinov, a member of the Working Group, told
According to Sadeddinov, the planned meeting is supposed to discuss the two lists of prisoners submitted to the CE. The first includes 107 names, the latter вЂ" 43.
71 prisoner have been released so far and the fates of the rest are expected to be decided by the 4th meeting. вЂњThe meeting will focus on proposals on amnesty and consider numerous applications by the prisoners. The list submitted by us includes political prisoners and former members of the special police division.
IвЂ™ll personally propose to consider the releasing of Rasim Akbarov, the former chief of police in Ganja, and Bayram Guliyev, the brother of ex-speaker Rasul Guliyev, as Akbarov has health problems and the arrest of Guliyev is ordered,вЂќ he underlined.
