PACE declaration in support with Bialiatski and his nomination as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Price

25 January 2012

In support of the awarding of the Nobel Peace Price to Ales Bialiatski, Belarusian Human Rights Defender

We, parliamentarians of the member states of the Council of Europe, strongly support the idea of awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to the distinguished Belarusian activist and the human rights defender – Ales Bialiatski. 

Ales Bialiatski, sentenced to 4,5 years of hard labour, has never been a politician. His only fault is that, being a sensitive person, he stood alongside the victims of the antidemocratic regime, helped them and took care of their families. We demand his release.

The People of the Free Europe will never abandon the citizens of Belarus, who are fully entitled to exercise the same rights as we do.
