26 Jun

New
York, June 26, 2012–Belarusian authorities
should immediately release a critical journalist who was tried, convicted and
sentenced to prison in a single day on a vague charge of hooliganism, the
Committee to Protect Journalists said today. In an unrelated incident, a Belarus
correspondent for the independent Moscow-based newspaper Novaya Gazeta received a threatening package in the mail, the paper
reported.
