The representative of the Belarusian Association of Journalists Andrej Aliaksandrau suggested to conduct special hearings dedicated to freedom of media in Belarus, during the session of the PACE Political Affairs Committee on November 18. The BAJ representative stated at the session that it was impossible to conduct free election without freedom of word. He reminded about the pressure, including economic one, on the mass media, about non-registration of civic and political publications. Apart from that, a series of non-governmental media cannot get into the state dissemination system.
