Belarus: Mikita Sasin, Prisoner of Conscience
Prominent youth opposition activist Mikita Sasim, who has suffered continual harassment and intimidation by the authorities, was sentenced to three months' imprisonment on 12 May for draft evasion, despite the fact that he had been granted a deferral of his military service. Amnesty International considers Mikita Sasim a prisoner of conscience, who has been detained solely for the non-violent exercise of his right to freedom of expression, association and assembly.
