Question for written answer E-001782-19
to the Commission (Vice-President/High Representative)
Rule 130
Bogdan Andrzej Zdrojewski (PPE)

 Subject:  VP/HR — Fundamental rights in Belarus
 Answer in writing 

We have seen a number of worrying developments recently in Belarus in connection with limits on freedom of expression and association.

The latest was the removal of the so-called People’s Memorial in Kuropaty, which commemorated the victims of Stalinism. It consisted of around 100 wooden crosses. The Belarusian authorities decided to remove the memorial and detained opposition activist protesting against the removal.

Can the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative state whether action is being taken to check that Belarus is complying with its obligations to respect fundamental rights? Over the past year we have seen increasing incidences of persecution and harassment of members of the opposition, lawyers and journalists in Belarus.

Given this situation, does the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative intend to take systematic action to urge the Belarusian authorities to respect fundamental rights?
