Barysau human rights defender Aleh Matskevich has received a reply from the UN Human Rights Committee saying that his complaint against several picket bans imposed by the town authorities has been registered by the Committee.

“Simultaneously, the Committee has sent a letter to the Belarusian authorities, demanding to provide explanations on the communication”, says Mr. Matskevich.

The complaint was submitted after Barysau executive authorities banned numerous pickets over the past five years.
