Joint statement of the Belarusian National Platform and Steering Committee of the EaP CSF on the latest concerning developments in Belarus

We express our great concern at the prolonged continuation of violence and oppression towards peaceful protesters and civil society activists in Belarus, including the recent murder of Raman Bandarenka, recent detention of thousands of people, including our member Andrei Yahorau, and the imprisonment of Belarusian Students Association activists and instituting criminal proceedings against them.

Detention members of BNP

On Sunday (September 6) Andrey Egorov and Irina Sukhy were detained.

In this regard, the BNP EaP CSF, Green Network and Ecohome issued a joint statement. The statement was supported by the members organizations.

The EaP CSF Monitoring Mission has released their final monitoring report on Belarus.

The presidential elections in Belarus were overshadowed by a violent crackdown on peaceful protesters and the political opposition. In light of the political situation in the country, the EaP CSF formed a Monitoring Mission to observe all stages of the election process, while also taking note of further political and social developments in and around Belarus in post-monitoring period.

Position of BNP. We are calling for dialogue and new elections.

Presidential Elections in Belarus on 09.08.2020 have been accompanied by massive violations of human rights and can by no means be regarded as free, transparent and democratic. During the whole rally the state government has been deliberately hindering the free expression of will by citizens which included prosecution against alternative candidates and their team members; (cyber)bullying and repressions towards bloggers, journalists, activists and ordinary citizens; massive manipulations and fraud during the voting process.
