Co-chairman of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Pavel Seviarynets strongly opposes the death penalty, as well as other leaders of the party. Although not all members of the party advocate the abolition of the death penalty, says Pavel Seviarynets.–We are against the death penalty, especially under the current system. After all, the current system can charge and punish any person, even completely innocent. We saw the example of the case of Kanavalau and Kavaliou. It is still unclear what Kavaliou was killed for – said Mr. Seviaryniets.
A Week against the Death Penalty is held in Belarus within the framework of the campaign “Human Rights Defenders against the Death Penalty in Belarus”, launched in 2009. The company’s goal is the abolition of the death penalty in the country and the accession of Belarus to the European values.
