US Congressmen Appeal to Podgorica for Prisoner's Rights
Members of the United States Congress recently replied to a letter from a student organization requesting that they pressure the Montenegrin government to adhere to international human rights during judicial proceedings involving 15 Albanian detainees currently being held in Spuz, Montenegro.
Eliot Engel (D-NY), Joe Knollenberg (R-MI), and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA)jointly signed on to an appeal directed at Montenegro's Premier, Milo Dukanovic, urging him to succumb to legal rights regarding the judicial proceedings of the 15 prisoners, now entering its 20th month without any judgement.
