India’s political prisoners: UN calls for release of activists
Secretary of State Pompeo also stressed the need to end violence against peaceful protesters
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calls for the immediate release of political prisoners in Belarus.
“The United States condemns the continued detention of political prisoners in Belarus,” said the Secretary of State. – Currently, more than 100 political prisoners are being held in custody because they exercised their human rights and fundamental freedoms by peacefully participating in protests, calling for free and fair elections and advocating for national dialogue to end the ongoing crisis. These political prisoners are subjected to ill-treatment and are being held in life-threatening conditions. Among other things, there were credible reports of torture. They are among the thousands of people unjustly detained since the violent crackdown on protests began. “.
“The United States supports those who remain in custody and are missing, those who have been killed, and those who continue to peacefully assert their right to choose their leaders in free and fair elections. We once again call on the Belarusian authorities to immediately stop the escalation of violence against peaceful demonstrators, release all political prisoners and other peaceful demonstrators and enter into a constructive dialogue with the Coordination Council and the Belarusian civil society, “Pompeo summed up.
