Godparenthood for political prisoners in Belarus | Libereco 

Deborah Düring (German Bundestag, Alliance 90/The Greens, member of the Committee for Economic Cooperation and Development) for I. Kastsiuchenka: “My full solidarity goes to all people in Belarus who are exposed to state violence and criminalised because of their commitment to democracy and the rule of law, to fair and free elections. Freedom of the press and freedom of expression are not crimes, but universal human rights that must be upheld everywhere. I stand firmly on the side of democratic civil society and therefore become the godparent of Iryna Kastsiuchenka. She has worked as a lawyer for the independent news portal TUT.BY and has been in detention since 18 May 2021. She and all other political prisoners must be released immediately and unconditionally.”
