Additional information concerning the case of death convict Uladzislau Kavaliou was submitted to the UN Human Rights Committee by his mother and sister, Liubou Kavaliova and Tatsiana Kaziar.

The information concerns the official date of the execution and the accompanying circumstances which can become a subject of additional consideration. According to lawyer and human rights defender Raman Kisliak, Liubou Kavaliova was unable to find about his location during a week after he had been denied pardon by Lukashenka.

As it was found later, Uladzislau Kavaliou was executed by shooting on 15 March, the day after he was denied pardon.
