Human rights action - BELARUS

Dear Friends,

This is the letter I have sent to the President of Belarus, expressing the great indignation of our Federation for the unacceptable condition of the Belarusian Colleagues engaged in the defense of Human Rights, often harassed and also disbarred for reasons alien to their professional activity.

At the same time, I have supported, on behalf of the FBE, an amicus brief in respect of a US case, as the sentencing of persons under 18 years of age without possibility of parole is prohibited by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

But these are only two steps, certainly very important and meaningful, of the great political and institutional action of the FBE, strongly engaged in the Human Rights’ defense.

A strong hug to you all.

Guido de Rossi

President of the FBE
