EU urges to release all the rest political prisoners

Such statements have been made on April 15 by EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton, Commissioner responsible for enlargement and European neighbourhood policy Štefan Füle and the EP President Martin Schulz. All of them have underlined that the political prisoners who are still imprisoned should also be released and rehabilitated.

Štefan Füle has noted that release of Sannikau and Bandarenka became the first fundamental step which was expected in the situation when Lukashenka promised to pardon those who asked for this. Alongside with that, he has underlined that making people confess in something they never committed does not correspond with the principles of the modern Europe and human dignity, BelaPAN reports.

Let us remind you, Andrei Sannikau was released from the colony on April 14, Zmitser Bandarenka - on April 15.
