The Belarusian opposition has filed a lawsuit with the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague against the President of Belarus, Alexandr Lukashenko, for violently repressing the demonstrations in this country. This has been confirmed by the opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanóvskaya on the Telegram channel “Country for life”. “We call on the ICC and the attorney general, Fatou Bensouda, to open a criminal case against the former president of Belarus for crimes against humanity”, affirm the authors of the complaint, residents of Canada and quoted in the social network.

According to the opponents, Lukashenko and his regime “are guilty of committing crimes against humanity, as he personally ordered the savage repression that took place in the streets of Belarus, in prisons and detention centers after the elections“The demand was supported by more than 37,000 Belarusians living in 102 countries around the world and is a reaction to” the violent seizure of power in Belarus by Alexandr Lukashenko. ”

The opponents ask to condemn the president, who has been in charge of the country for 26 years for “falsifying the elections of August 9, 2020, cruelly repressing the protests peaceful with use of weapons and the massive repression against Belarusians. “Meanwhile, Tikhanóvskaya assured from Telegram that Lukashenko’s regime is not only illegitimate, but” is not capable of fulfilling its mission, “so he continues creating a team to promote changes in Belarus. “We are not going to stand idly by and watch the country sink further into crisis. For this reason, in order to guarantee the holding of new elections, I continue to work to unify all the democratic forces in Belarusian society, “she said.

The opposition leader announced the appointment of Harry Pogoniáilo, renowned jurist and defender of fundamental freedoms, as a representative for human rights. In addition, it appointed the economist Ales Alejnovich, currently vice president of the CASE-Belarus Analysis Center, as the representative for economic reforms.

In the Belarusian presidential elections, Lukashenko was re-elected with 80.1% of the votes, but his victory was marred by the arrests of opponents and journalists, Internet blocking and suspected fraud of the process. Two days after the elections Tikhanóvskaya went into exile in Lithuania due to pressure from the authorities.
