CIVIL SOCIETY FORUM CALLS FOR RELEASE OF ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS IN EASTERN PARTNERSHIP COUNTRIES



The Civil Society Forum (CSF) has called for the release of all political prisoners in Eastern Partnership countries in a statement addressed to the EU Eastern Partnership ministerial meeting in Brussels on 23 July 2012.

"Some political prisoners have been released in Azerbaijan and Belarus, but it is not acceptable to have any political prisoners in the Eastern Partnership countries, and we call for the unconditional release of all,” says the statement. “On 26 June 2012, the Council of Europe called for resolution of the cases of more than 80 political prisoners in Azerbaijan alone, and we must not forget that next week marks the anniversary of the imprisonment of Ales Bialiatski, a courageous human rights defender in Belarus."
