Abduction of activists

Members of the Human Rights House Network are alarmed by recent reports of abductions of youth activists in the Republic of Belarus. These incidents appear to be a new and intimidating tool for harassment of Belarusian activists, who in an organised manner or independently demonstrate their opposition to the rule of the government of Republic of Belarus. As such, they represent a violation of the freedom of expression as well as the right to assembly and association. 16 Dec 2009 »

Зварот аб выкраданні актывістаў

Сябры Сеткі Дамоў правоў чалавека занепакоеныя паведамленнямі аб ажыццяўленні выкраданняў маладзёвых актывістаў, якія адбываліся ў Беларусі апошнім часам. Відавочная сувязь паміж некалькімі падобнымі інцыдэнтамі, таксама тое, што супрацьпраўныя дзеянні супраць маладых людзей чыніліся не з мэтай вымагання грошай. Асаблівую трывогу выклікаюць падазрэнні ў задзейнічанні ў гэтых выкраданнях супрацоўнікаў міліцыі і КДБ. 16 Dec 2009 »
