New
York, June 21, 2012–Authorities in Belarus must drop the charges against a prominent
journalist arrested today for libel against the president, and immediately release
him, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today. Andrzej Poczobut has been
targeted in the past for his critical writing, CPJ research shows.
