Liubou Kavaliova, mother of death convict Uladzislau Kavaliou, and his sister, Tatsiana Kaziar, have received official information from the Office of the Supreme Commissioner for Human Rights. This information had been passed to it by representatives of the Belarusian government at the UN Geneva office on 15 March 2012 – the day when Uladzislau Kavaliou had been executed by shooting.

Representatives of Belarus informed the UN Human Rights Committee that the review appeal of Mr. Kavaliou had been filed with the Supreme Court and the president was considering his plea for pardon, that's why the implementation of the death verdict was suspended till the end of these procedures.

In this very information it was also stated that the appeal on Uladzislau Kavaliou's case, and the essence of its pretensions were unacceptable.

Kavaliou's mother and sister will soon file their disproof of this outrageous information with the UN Human Rights Committee.
