13:47 Belarusian nominated for Robert F. Kennedy Prize

Belarusian human rights defenders have nominated a political prisoner Zmitser Dashkevich for the Robert F. Kennedy Prize.

The initiators of the idea were the «Belarusian Helsinki Committee», «People’s Legal Assistance», «Human Rights Protection Alliance» and «Repression Victim’s Support Committee».


Let us remind you that a youth activist Zmitser Dashkevich has been sentenced to 1.5 years of imprisonment for participation in the activities of an unregistered organization.


Every year «Robert F. Kennedy Memorial» gives awards to brave people, risking their lives to protect human rights and who are persecuted by the authorities for it, informs belpa.org.
