Sinikka Hurskainen, Rapporteur on the political situation in Belarus of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has arrived in Minsk for “collecting information, for meeting with people and for discussing the situation in the country”.

She stated this on 23 August at the meeting with the Deputy Chairman of the House of Representatives of Belarus Viktor Guminsky.

According to the words of Hurskainen, she is interested in the situation in Belarus on three issues – human rights, democracy and the precedence of law. “I would like to know what has been achieved in Belarus following our previous visit. I am aware of bad news concerning new capital punishments,” – she noted.

On the other side Guminsky expressed his confidence that sooner or later Belarus will become the true member of PACE. “We are welcoming your visit and assume it will facilitate the development of contacts between the Belarusian Parliament and PACE,” – said the Deputy.

He thanked Hurskainen for a constructive approach towards the development of relations between PACE and Belarus.

As it was earlier reported by BelaPAN, the visit of the PACE Rapporteur on Belarus will take place for three days. Sinikka Hurskainen will have several official meetings – with the heads of the two Houses of Representatives to the Parliament, the Minister of Justice Viktor Golovanov, the Prosecutor General Grigory Vasilevich, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Valery Voronetsky the Minister of Information Oleg Proleskovsky and the Head of the parliamentary working group on the issue of the death penalty Nikolai Samoseiko.

Meetings are also planned with the representatives of the opposition and Non-governmental Organisations.
