MINSK, 16 July (BelTA) – The Republican Party of Labor and Justice strongly condemns criminal actions of radicals that posed a threat to life, health and property of Belarusian public figures and journalists who openly and actively express their views and speak up for the state sovereignty and constitutional order of Belarus, the party said in its statement posted on its website, BelTA has learned.
“An attempt on the life of well-known Belarusian journalist Grigory Azaryonok was made on 2 July, and an attempt to set fire to the house of Chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party of Belarus Oleg Gaidukevich was made on 11 July. These socially dangerous crimes are nothing else but acts of terrorism aimed at obstructing political and other public activities, an attempt to intimidate Belarusian public figures and undermine public order. These crimes seek to silence Belarusian public figures, intimidate them for their courage to speak up and defend the political and social system in the Republic of Belarus,” the message reads.
The Republican Party of Labor and Justice stands in solidarity with all active citizens who are not indifferent to the destiny of the Fatherland and actively speak up for the sovereignty and national security of Belarus.
“We strongly believe that the investigative actions and search measures of the Belarusian authorities will help identify the perpetrators in the shortest possible time and bring them to justice,” the party underlines.
