  • BAJ Appeals to Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression

    BAJ sent urgent letters to the UN Special Rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression David Kaye, informing about the recent violent attack on the correspondent of TUT.by portal Pavel Dabravolski, and about the continuing administrative prosecution of freelance journalists contributing to foreign mass media without accreditation.

    BAJ calls on the Spe­cial Rap­por­teur to request expla­na­tions from Belaru­sian author­i­ties regard­ing the recent beat­ing of the cor­re­spon­dent by police offi­cers in the build­ing of court. BAJ insists that the jour­nal­ist per­formed his pro­fes­sion­al duties, and his pro­fes­sion­al and cit­i­zen rights were vio­lat­ed.

    In a sep­a­rate urgent appeal BAJ asks to clar­i­fy the grounds for admin­is­tra­tive pros­e­cu­tion under arti­cle 22.9 against Larysa Shyrako­va and Kas­tus Zhuk­ous­ki, and calls on the Spe­cial Rap­por­teur to urge to put an end to the pros­e­cu­tion of jour­nal­ists for their work.
