PACE President welcomes release of Arif Yunus

Baku: “I welcome the release of Arif Yunus on humanitarian grounds and hope that more prisoners will be released soon and especially those whose health condition is a matter of serious concern,” Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly President Anne Brasseur declared on Friday.

That said, the concerns raised by the legal proceedings against Arif Yunus and other human rights defenders and journalists have not been resolved, she said.

“I appeal, once more, to the authorities of Azerbaijan to act in accordance with the standards of the European Convention on Human Rights and their commitments and obligations to the Council of Europe,” the president added.
