MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - Head of the Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights (HRC) Mikhail Fedotov said on Thursday that HRC members would meet Russian President Vladimir Putin on September 4.
Fedotov told a HRC session earlier this week that main topics for discussion with the Russian President would be development of legislation on non-governmental organisations to reflect world experience, changes to the penitentiary system, legal groundwork for public control, and legal reform with possible discussion of an amnesty marking the 20th anniversary of the Constitution.
"I'd like to talk about the amnesty not as it is traditionally understood. It should become a sort of symbol summing up two decades in the difficult birth of a law-governed state," Fedotov told the Tuesday session.
