Canadian human rights organization “Human Rights Internet” decided its activist Derek Martin would not come to Belarus for an internship.
Derek Martin planned to work in Belarusian Helsinki Committee for 6 months. But Canadian Department of Internal Affairs having researched the possibility for such a trip decided it might be too risky.
Belarusian Helsinki Committee believes this decision might be connected to the recent deportation of German citizen Jan Busch, partner of Belarusian youth political organizations. Another reason might be persecution of non-governmental organization, including human rights NGOs, in Belarus.
