    Appeal to the UN Special Procedures regarding the death of Mikalai Klimovich

    In our statement, we emphasized that the death of Mikalai Klimovich is in no way the first case of death of political prisoners in Belarusian penitentiaries. Furthermore, human rights activists continuously report the lack of proper medical examination, qualified medical personnel, appropriate conditions and equipment, as well as failure to provide medical assistance. We also described the practice of denying medical care for political prisoners to apply further pressure. //
  • We demand to investigate Klimovich's death and the lack of proper medical care in the colonies

    We call on the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Belarus and the Investigative Committee of the Republic of Belarus to initiate criminal proceedings on the death of Mikalai Klimovich, conduct an objective and comprehensive investigation to determine the causes of this tragedy, and inform the public about the results. We also request a review of other instances where the right to healthcare has been violated in detention facilities and urge the implementation of suitable actions to ensure those accountable are held responsible in order to avoid future tragedies. We demand that the Belarusian authorities provide proper medical care in places of deprivation of liberty, including the presence of qualified medical personnel and appropriate equipment. //
  • The Belarusian Helsinki Committee spoke at the 52nd session of the UN Human Rights Council on behalf of the coalition of Belarusian human rights defenders

    We endorse the view shared by more than 30 Belarusian and international human rights organizations that the Council should establish an independent mechanism to investigate the most severe human rights violations in Belarus, including crimes against humanity. //
