Bertrand Delanoë, mayor of Paris

September 1, 2011- Paris

” I wish to express my deep concern following the arrest of Aliaksandr Bialiatski, Vice-President of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and President of the Human Rights Center “Viasna” in Belarus.

Despite being threatened by the Belarus authorities, this brave man has waged a daily, relentless battle for the defence of Human Rights in his country, putting his life at risk.
In the name of Paris, a city that has always been indefectibly attached to the respect for Human Rights and fundamental freedoms worldwide, I express my full solidarity with Aliaksandr Bialiatski, and I call on the Belarus authorities to release him immediately and unconditionally.”
