MOSCOW, August 20 (Itar-Tass) - Head of the Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights (HRC) Mikhail Fedotov is hoping that the head of state will attend the HRC session on September 4.
"We'll discuss the issue of preparing a meeting with Vladimir Putin at the August 22 session. The meeting with Putin is due on September 4," Fedotov said.
The main topics for discussion with the Russian President is the development of legislation on non-governmental organizations while taking into account global experience, an adjustment of the penitentiary system, setting up the legal groundwork for public control and legal reform with a possible discussion of amnesty on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Constitution."
"I'd like to talk about the amnesty not as it is traditionally understood; it should become sort of a symbol summing up two decades of the difficult birth of a law-governed state," Fedotov said.
