Urging Belarus dictator to stop harassment

Civil Rights Defenders and three other human rights organisations sent a protest letter to the Belarus dictator Alexander Lukashenka concerning the recent arrest of three human rights defenders. Each of the three was fined a sum equal to $6 for protesting against capital punishment, and thereafter released. In the letter we urge the authorities to stop harassment of those defending human rights in Belarus.
