A number of MPs of the Polish Sejm are expected to announce their involvement in the nomination of Viasna leader Ales Bialiatski for the Nobel Peace Prize this Friday, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports.

The official statement has reportedly been signed by MPs from other CE countries, too.

“The idea appeals to our colleagues and they gladly signed the statement during the recent PACE session in Strasbourg”, says Mr. Andrzej Halicki, head of the Polish delegation to PACE.

According to Mr. Halicki, Poland owes much to Ales Bialiatski and therefore should pay its tribute to him in this way.
