On 21 February the International Observation Mission released a statement, urging the Belarusian authorities, in particular the Supreme Court, together with separate courts, to secure free access of the Mission’s observers to courtrooms during the trials of the detainees in the 19 December mass riot criminal case.

Acting on behalf of the Committee on International Control, the International Observation Mission announces its intention “to carry out a public monitoring of the trials of the participants of the 19 December post-election events.”

The Mission also insistently recommends the Belarusian authorities to make all the trials open to international observers.
