Baku. Hafiz Heydarov – APA. Chief of Azerbaijani Committee against Torture Elchin Behbudov appealed to President asking to mitigate punishment of General Zakir Nasirov and several other life-term prisoners. The committee chief told APA that when he visited Gobustan jail of Justice Ministry’s Penitentiary Service, nine lifers asked him to appeal to President Ilham Aliyev for mitigating their sentence.
“Taking into account the prisoners’ request, I appealed to the head of state. I asked the president to commute their life sentence, I believe that our president will approve this initiative,” he said.

Elchin Behbudov met with a number of prisoners, as well as with former chief of Interior Ministry’s Crime Investigation Department Zakir Nasirov in Gobustan jail a few days ago. Zakir Nasirov said he had always been devoted to President and wanted to die near his family, not in prison. He wanted to be pardoned and asked the human rights defender to deliver his wish to President.
