The UN Human Rights Committee has accepted a joint complaint by Zhlobin members of the party “Fair World” submitted to challenge a decision by the local executive committee to ban a number of pickets in 2012. This was announced by the head of the party’s district office Valery Rybchanka.

“We sent a complaint last month and recently received the answer that our complaints were received,” says Mr. Rybchanka. “The complaints concerned both the bans on our pickets in support of political prisoners and those that we were going to stage regarding falsification of the presidential elections in 2010. We went through all the domestic courts, and so we decided to go to the UN.”

Now the party activists are waiting for their complaints to be registered by the Committee, expected next month.

This is not the first time that Zhlobin members of the Party of the Left “Fair World submit complaints to the UN Human Rights Committee against bans to hold pickets imposed by local authorities. Similar complaints were considered by the Committee in 2011 and 2012.
