PUBLIC UNION CHAIRPERSON FILES APPEAL

August 10th, 2009
“Regional Human Rights and Education Center” Public Union Chairperson Latifa Malikova filed an appeal against the decision of the Yasamal District Court adopted on her lawsuit against the Justice Ministry for its refusal to register Malikova’s organization.

The Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety was told this by L.Malikova.  
L.Malikova appealed to the Justice Ministry in November 2008 to register “Regional Human Rights and Education Center” Public Union and then appealed to court due to Ministry’s refusal to register the union. On 1 July the Yasamal District Court issued a verdict not to fulfill the lawsuit.
