Baku / 11.11.17 / Turan: The Republican Alternative Movement (REAL) appealed to the Baku City Executive Power with a request to provide a venue for the constituent congress of the party of the same name. The appeal was sent on behalf of the initiative group for holding the congress. The movement requests to provide a room for 400 seats on one of the proposed calendar days on November 18, 19, 25, 26 or December 2, 3.
Earlier REAL had twice applied for the provision of a venue for the congress, however, the city authorities refused. Hotels and business centers also refused to provide conference rooms to REAL.
* REAL was established in 2009, and opposed the stay of one person as President of the country for more than two terms. The leader of the movement Ilgar Mammadov was arrested on far-fetched charges of organizing riots in the Ismayilli region in January 2013 and sentenced to 7 years in prison.
However, the European Court of Human Rights found his arrest unlawful and politically motivated and decided that he should be immediately released. This decision of the Strasbourg Court, taken in May 2014, has not yet been executed.-- 05B06-
