"We are concerned about this development, which indicates that the situation of journalists in Belarus is getting worse and worse," said Federation Secretary General Aidan White.
According to the International Federation of Journalists in recent years Belarus constantly violates all the basic principles of freedom of the press, despite international calls for President Lukashenko to respect freedom of speech and human rights.
Not so long ago Lukashenko signed a contract with British PR company "Bell Pottinger Group", to work on his style. "The best method, as President Lukashenko could do better own style — it is to respect the freedom of the press and the work of journalists," said Aidan White.
