Petition to the acting Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenka and to the 19 December 2010 newly elected President of the Republic of Belarus

Dear Mr. President

We, the undersigned, urge you to ensure that Belarus fulfils its human rights obligations, in particular, with the implementation of the following recommendations:

- to declare an immediate moratorium on executions and to abolish the death penalty

- to guarantee the rights to freedom of expression, assembly, association, press and religion to all people in Belarus

- to allow peaceful demostrations to take place

- to ensure that no one is detained, arrested or charged under any Article of the Criminal or Administrative Codes of Belarus as a result of their peaceful participation in demonstrations

- to ensure that human rights defenders, journalists and other civil society activists are able to carry out their legitimate work free from persecution, harassment and intimidation

- to simplify the registration procedures for non-governmental organizations

- to abolish Article 193.1 of the Criminal Code, which criminalises activities on behalf of an unregistered non-governmental organisation
