08 February 2008 [16:54] - TODAY.AZ
It is now difficult to speak of the need to appoint a PACE rapporteur on political prisoners in Azerbaijan.

The due announcement was made by PACE co-rapporteur Andres Herkel  during a press conference by results of the visit to Azerbaijan.

He noted that everything will depend on the activity of the work group on this problem, composed of the representatives of the government and human rights activists.

"I do hope that the work group will act on the due level so that there will not be a need for a rapporteur", he said.
