Christof Heyns, the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial killings

Homel Center for Strategic litigation sent a message to Christof Heyns, the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial killings. Human rights defenders in the report inform the Special Rapporteur on the serving an execution in respect of Homel resident Alexander Hrunou, which individual complaint is pending before the United Nations Human Rights Committee.

Human rights defenders expressed concern about serving an execution in the country, which essentially is extrajudicial killing.

"Any violation of the requirements of a fair trial is classified as extrajudicial execution. The complaint of the executed Homel resident disclosed a violation of his right to a fair trial. The government of Belarus has received a request not to serve an execution as long as the case was pending before the Committee, however, it violated its obligations, "- said the head of the Homel Center for Strategic litigation Leanid Sudalenka.
The human rights defenders are calling in their appeal for the UN Special Rapporteur to take all possible steps within its mandate.
