Human Rights Center Viasna

viasna@spring96.org

Human Rights Center "Viasna" is a non-governmental human rights organization, created in 1996 during mass protest actions of the democratic opposition in Belarus. Viasna was initially a group created to help the arrested rally participants and their families. That’s why originally Viasna had the name “Viasna-96”. On 15 June 1999 the organization was registered as the Human Rights Center "Viasna". It is a national NGO with the central office in Minsk and regional organizations in the majority of Belarusian cities. Viasna has about 200 members all over the country. The organization is managed by the Council and chair of the Council, elected by the General Congress.

On 28 October 2003 the Supreme Court of the Republic of Belarus groundlessly cancelled registration of Viasna for its participation in observation of the presidential election in 2001. On 6 March 2004 the Human Rights Center "Viasna" became member of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH).

Discrimination against opposition in formation of DECs and PECs

Belarusian Parliamentary elections will take place on 17 November 2019 and during the formation of district and precinct election commissions (DECs and PECs) it has been observed that the absence of legal guarantees for the representation of all political actors on the election commissions has resulted in discriminatory treatment towards opposition parties. E.g. out of 495 nominees to the PECs, 21 come from opposition parties.
