Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights has delilvered a statement on the High Commissioner report on the situation of human rights in Belarus. HFHR emphasises the monumental crisis of the rule of law and human rights in Belarus and the intensification of political repressions.
HFHR is deeply concerned about increased practice of disbarment of lawyers, including by requiring them to sign nondisclosure agreements in almost all politically motivated criminal cases.
