The Youth Committee of the Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (APFP) has started a new campaign for release of political prisoners. On April 17, the Committee gave detailed information to the public about the campaign launched on Facebook on April 14. The campaign named "Release" calls for full freedom for political prisoners. The Committee chairman Ilham Huseynov reminded the recent arrests of political activists and administrative punishments imposed on APFP members. "The situation in the country has become such that citizens do not know to whom they should address for protection" he said. According to APFP deputy chairman Abulfaz Gurbanli, the campaign must give maximum possible information to the public about political prisoners and achieve exertion of international pressure on Baku. "We cannot allow that NIDA members are given lengthy prison sentences. We'll fight for the release of all political prisoners. Therefore the campaign needs to be sustainable," Gurbanli said. Director of the Peace and Democracy Institute, Leyla Yunus noted that her organization has been dealing with political prisoner problem since 1995. "At that time there were 714 political prisoners in Azerbaijan. In 2002 their number was less than one hundred. Now there are 129 political prisoners. Forty of them are prisoners of conscience," Yunus said. She suggested starting a new campaign calling for cancellation of European Olympic Games due to be held in Azerbaijan next year, and appealing to the Council of Europe member states and the Committee of Ministers regarding the problem of political prisoners in the country. NIDA Movement Board member Turgut Gambar read the statement of the 8 arrested members of the organization. They announced a hunger strike in protest against discrimination and repressions. There was a consensus among the speakers that social networks are an important place to call for the release of political prisoners.
