The press-conference will be held with the participation of the campaign “Human Rights Defenders against the Death Penalty” Valiantsin Stefanovich and Andrei Paluda, as well as the relatives of death convicts.

Comments will be given on the latest events related to the issue of the death penalty in Belarus.

On 10 October the World Day against the Death Penalty is marked. Since 1997 Europe has actually been a territory free from the death penalty. Belarus is the only Belarusian country which is not a member of the Council of Europe. The main obstacle for its accession to this body is the ongoing use of the death penalty in the country.

The press-conference will be held on Thursday, 10 October, at 12 a.m. at the office of the HRC “Viasna” in Miarzhynski Street, 8-26 (metro station “Park Chelyuskintsev”).

Contact telephones: (017) 280-23-11, (029) 841-39-81.
