Crimes against humanity in Belarus

Responsibility of the Lukashenka regime for crimes against humanity in Belarus

Today, July 26, 2023, our partner, the Center for Law and Democracy Justice Hub published report on crimes against humanity in Belarus and mechanisms for bringing perpetrators to justice. The National Anti-Crisis Managment provided all possible support to the Center for Law and Democracy in this work.

Pavel Latushka, Head of the NAM, in connection with the publication of the report, noted the following: “the report actually substantiates the fulfillment of the criterion of international criminal law “that there are sufficient grounds to believe” that unlawful imprisonment, torture, murder, rape , enforced disappearances, political persecution, and deportation in the context of a widespread and systematic attack against the civilian population of Belarus from May 2020 to the present, constitute crimes against humanity. The report emphasizes that this attack on the civilian population is the state policy of the Lukashenka regime.

Special attention is paid to the main perpetrators of these crimes. Among them are representatives of the power structures of Belarus (OMON, KGB, GUBOPiK and others), as well as judges, prosecutors, the top political leadership of the regime, including the dictator himself. Of particular value are the chapters devoted to the mechanisms of bringing the perpetrators to justice.

This report certainly makes a significant contribution to the work of restoring justice for tens of thousands of victims of these crimes. The NAM has already initiated the implementation of the ideas contained in the report to bring to justice the perpetrators of these crimes.
