Belarus' Constitutional Court: EU sanctions contravene UN Charter

MINSK, 15 December (BelTA) - The sanctions documents, adopted by the European Union, do not comply with the UN Charter, Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Belarus Piotr Miklashevich said as he announced the Constitutional Court's decision on the case “On compliance with generally recognized principles and norms of international law of documents adopted (published) by the European Union and some foreign states and their government bodies on introducing restrictive measures against the Republic of Belarus” on 15 December, BelTA has learned.

“The Constitutional Court notes that the documents adopted (issued) by the European Union and some foreign states and their bodies on introducing restrictive measures against the Republic of Belarus, do not comply with the provisions of Chapters 6 and 7 of the UN Charter, which establish the mechanism of preventive and coercive measures against the state only by decision of the UN Security Council in order to maintain international peace and security,” said Piotr Miklashevich.

The Constitutional Court chairman added that the states' commitment to comply with the principle of non-interference in matters within the domestic jurisdiction of any state and the principles of sovereign equality of states are enshrined in the Declaration on the Inadmissibility of Intervention in the Internal Affairs of States, the Protection of their Independence and Sovereignty of 1965, the Declaration on Principles of International Law of 1970, the Charter of Economic Rights and Duties of States of 1974.
