    BAJ Statement: 15 Years since Abduction of Dzmitry Zavadski

    Today is 15 years since the trag­ic day when our col­league, mem­ber of BAJ Dmit­ry Zavad­s­ki dis­ap­peared in unclar­i­fied cir­cum­stances.

    For all these years, law enforce­ment agen­cies have not found answers to the ques­tions: who was mas­ter­mind and imple­menter of the crime, what real­ly hap­pened to Dzmit­ry, where to find his traces?

    Rel­a­tives, close friends, oth­er cit­i­zens stay unaware of what has hap­pened to him, as well as to oth­er jour­nal­ists who died in mys­te­ri­ous cir­cum­stances.

    The crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tion into the abduc­tion of Dzmit­ry Zavad­s­ki has been repeat­ed­ly sus­pend­ed, but with zero results.

    The pub­lic asso­ci­a­tion Belaru­sian Asso­ci­a­tion of Jour­nal­ists demands that com­pe­tent law enforce­ment agen­cies hold full inves­ti­ga­tion into all cir­cum­stances of the journalist’s dis­ap­pear­ance.

    We call on rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the civ­il soci­ety to keep an eye on the case of Dzmit­ry Zavad­s­ki until the author­i­ties reveal the whole truth about this crime, until names of per­pe­tra­tors are revealed.

    Adopt­ed by the Board of BAJ
