Belarus: The Human Rights Council must renew the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Belarus
Amnesty International deplores the sharp rise in death sentences and executions in Belarus and the continued violation of the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly, association and expression. The detention of hundreds of peaceful protestors across the country in March and April this year, with multiple reports of excessive use of police force, was extreme even by Belarusian standards. In such a context, it is imperative that the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Belarus is extended and that the Belarusian authorities grant full access to the country.
