The Cou-fonders of the Nasha Viasna human rights organization has lodges a complaint with the Supreme Court of Belarus against the decision of the Ministry of Justice to deny registration to the NGO on 26 February 2009.
The co-authors of the complaint stress that the refusal was ungrounded and illegal, which is an evidence of systematic politically motivated discrimination of their rights and an outrage against the international human rights treaties, ratified by Belarus.
The human rights activists think that, by denying registration to Nasha Viasna, the Belarusian authorities showed their disrespect of the rights of the country’s citizens and cynically ignored the undertaken international commitments in the field of human rights.
