Human rights reporter banned from Belarus

From Human Rights House:

A UN special reporter was banned entry to the country because his mission is to collect information about the human rights in Belarus. Instead, he will visit the Baltic states where he is going to meet representatives of the government and other governmental and nongovernmental organizations.

Adrian Severin, a special reporter of the UN Committee for human rights, is going to visit Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania in September, 18-24 to collect information about the human rights situation in Belarus.

Mr. Severin, the former Foreign Minister of Romania was appointed a special UN reporter for human rights in Belarus in July, 2004. However, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Belarus officially refused to cooperate with the special reporter and forbade him the country.
