Six people are still missing.





In Belarus, 450 cases of torture and ill-treatment of people deprived of their liberty were recorded during the post-election protests.

This was stated in the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

“We are extremely alarmed by hundreds of allegations of torture and other forms of ill-treatment in detention facilities,” the statement said.

However, the UN said it has information about cases of violence against children, as well as sexual violence against women.

The organization required the Belarusian authorities to fully investigate the incidents, bring the perpetrators to justice, and compensate the victims and their families for the damage caused.

A total of about 7,000 people were detained in the first days of the protests, and most of those detained have now been released. Strikes were held at many enterprises.

It should be noted that President of the country Alexander Lukashenko, who has been heading Belarus for 26 years, refused to acknowledge the nationwide character of the protests and repeatedly insulted the participants of the protests, calling them “people with a criminal past.
