Human Rights Activists Appeal to Authorities to Release Tofig Yagublu
Members of the Joint Working Group (JWG) on human rights from among human rights defenders are holding discussions with representatives of state bodies for the release of opposition leader Tofig Yagublu from prison. Turan was informed about this by a member of the JWG, human rights activist Novella Jafaroglu.
According to her, the members of the JWG appeal to their partners in the JWG from among representatives of government agencies, deputies, members of the commission on pardon, and heads of law enforcement agencies.
The solution to the issue is presented to human rights defenders in the urgent and objective consideration of Yagublu's appeal, the cancellation of the verdict of the court of first instance and the release of Yagublu.
Jafaroglu noted that human rights activists also raise the issue of other political prisoners.
The JWG was established in 2005 and recreated in 2014, and includes representatives of both civil society and various branches of government.
Currently, human rights defenders are represented in the JWG by Novella Jafaroglu, Saida Gojamanli, Saadat Bananyarli, Avaz Hasanov, Arzu Abdullayeva, Mirvari Gahramanli, and Chingiz Ganizadeh.
