Mahiliou: viewing of the documentaries about the death penalties.

In the evening of 10 October about 30 citizens, concerned about the issue of the death penalty, gathered at the community center “Kola” (“Circle”).

Human rights activists Aliaksei Kolchyn and Barys Bukhel held a short lecture on the death penalty, after which the public viewing of the documentaries “Departed on Sentence” and 'Don't Take Life” was held.

The human rights defenders drew the statistics, according to which in 2012 three Belarusian citizens were sentenced to death. Despite the fact that much more people were eecuted that year in some other countries (about 1000 people China, 314 – in Iran in 129 in Iraq) they alleged that evil can not be measured by the number of convicts.

A discussion was held after the viewing of the movies. The event was timed to the World Day against the Death Penalty.
