LAW-DEFENDERS TO ADDRESS TO HEAD OF MILLI MAJLIS WORKING GROUP ON PRISONERS
On Wednesday law-defenders will address to Ali Husseynov, the chairman of the Milli Majlis (Parliament) Legislative Commission, also head of the Working Group on Prisoners, Chingiz Ganizada, a law-defender, told Trend.
The reason for address is non-holding of the Working GroupвЂ™s 4th meeting scheduled for 16 September. вЂњThe meeting did not take place. The law-defenders of the monitoring group were not aware of the reason. We decided that if the date of next meeting was not known, we would address to the head of the Working Group on Wednesday,вЂќ Ganizada stressed.
The 4th meeting is supposed to discuss two lists of prisoners submitted to the Council of Europe (CE). The first consists of 107 names, the latter вЂ" 43. It should be mentioned that 71 of prisoners have been released so far, but the fate of the rest is planned to be discussed at the meeting.
