Facilitated entry from Belarus to EU: support freedom!
Today, the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) approved an agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Belarus on the facilitation of the issuance of visas.
MEP Patrick Breyer (Pirate Party Germany), shadow rapporteur of the Greens/EFA Group, comments : “The Belarusian government is a de facto dictatorship which still executes the death penalty and prosecutes both press and opponents. I strongly condemn this. By opening up the country more to travel to and from the EU, I hope to support the forces of democracy and human rights defenders in their fight against the Belarusian regime”.
