The Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the PACE Secretary General Terry Davis sharply criticize the detention of the human rights activists Tatsiana Reviaka and Hary Pahaniayla for distribution of the PACE report on forced disappearances.

According to the secretary general, these detentions (that took place on 16 September) are violation of the liberty of expression and distribution of information in Belarus. Such actions can lead only to further isolation of the country from the world community, -- stated Terry Davis.
