The Czech Republic, with regard to the very serious endangering of the life of Aleksandr Kozulin, calls on the Belarusian authorities for his immediate release and urgent medical care.

In case of a refusal of the required help, the Belarusian authorities will face the consequences of a further deterioration of the reputation of Belarus at international level.

The Czech Republic reminds Belarus of its international commitments in the area of human rights, which are embodied in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, ratified by Belarus.
