Statement on the situation in Belarus

We deeply regret that Belarus handed down a new death sentence today.

The Council of Europe expects Belarus to grant the condemned the full right to appeal. Death is not justice.

We call on the authorities of Belarus to put a moratorium on the death penalty in place without delay.
