Today the election of fourteen members of the Human Rights Council will be held. Belarus is one of the candidates. On this occasion, Valer Shauchenka, an activist from Navapolatsk, sent a fax to the UN headquarters, as well as to Lukashenka’s administration and a number of foreign embassies.

In his letter he told about the persecution that he faces. He says it is connected with his activity as a trade union leader.
