We kindly invite you to a launch event and discussion of the documentary film "Torture in Belarus." The event is organized by the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture victims (IRCT) and the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT). The documentary screening will be followed by a discussion on accountability and rehabilitation with a panel of experts (see attached) and a torture survivor.
Date: April 25th 2023
Venue: Independent Belarusian House, Rue d'Arenberg 1D, 1000 Brussels
Light refreshments and drinks will be provided at the reception.
The documentary sheds light on the systemic human rights violations, including torture and mistreatment of detainees, committed by Belarusian authorities since the mass protests in August 2020 following the disputed re-election of Alexander Lukashenko as President. The situation in Belarus has been assessed as amounting to crimes against humanity by the OHCHR, and has drawn widespread international attention and condemnation.
