Baku. Ramil Mammadli – APA. Chief of Azerbaijani Committee against Torture Elchin Behbudov has today met with Chairman of “Yeni Fikir” Youth Movement Ruslan Bashirli in jail #1 of Justice Ministry’s Penitentiary Service. Behbudov told APA that Bashirli did not complain of detention conditions.
“Ruslan Bashirli asked me to appeal to President Ilham Aliyev for his pardoning. Ruslan Bashirli says he is ready to withdraw his appeal filed to the European Court of Human Rights, if he is pardoned,” he said.
Elchin Behbudov said he would appeal to the head of state for Bashrili’s pardoning on December 17.
