Council of Europe: 'Death is no justice'
"Two new death verdicts handed on 20 January by the Minsk City Court are a very disturbing development. We reiterate our call on the Belarusian authorities to introduce a moratorium on capital punishment as the first step to its abolition," Spokesperson of the Council of Europe's Secretary General said today.
"We call on the authorities not to proceed to the execution of these people and spare the lives of others in the death row. Death is no justice."
