Human rights defenders against death penalty
In January 2010 the human rights organization Viasna and the Belarusian Helsinki Committee launched the campaign “Human rights defenders against death penalty.” The campaign aims to disseminate objective information and in the long term work for abolition of the death penalty.
Abolition of the death penalty is a prerequisite for normalization of the relations between Belarus and the EU, Viasna says in its latest report.
