Statement by the Spokesperson on a death sentence in Belarus

Today we have learned with regret about another death sentence in Belarus, pronounced by the Mogilev Regional Court. We hope that this decision can be overturned by a higher instance court. The Council of Europe continues to call on Belarus to introduce a moratorium on the death penalty as the first step towards its abolition.
