Members of Working Group on Prisoners to send appeal in regard to group's inactivity
The working group on prisoners members will appeal on 6 March to the head of the Department on work with law enforcement bodies under the Azerbaijans president office Fuad Aleskerov and MP Samed Ganiyev, the working group member, a human rights activist Chingiz Ganizade told Trend.
The activities of the group on prisoners consisting of the Milli Mejlis deputies and non-governmental organizations for the latest 8 months have been reduced to zero. It causes concern among 10 independent human rights activists, members of the group.
В"There is information that on the eve of the Novruz Bayrami the head of the state will sign a pardoning decree. Under the memorandum signed between the authorities and non-governmental organizations the meeting of the working group is to be held soon and discussions of the lists, submitted by the human rights defenders in regard to political prisoners will take place, Ganizade said.
Subsequent steps of human rights activists will depend on the response of the officials for this appeal.
