O.Gulak: "There is the problem of human morality: a man can not kill another human being"
Human rights activist Aleh Hulak logic reasoning Sukala sovereign nor deny. But says that they are incompatible with the principles of human morality generally.
Hulak: "This is a long-standing and davneshny dispute problem — what is the death penalty. We agree that there were some exceptional cases that essentially merciless atrocities committed. Certain logic in this, you can find. But! There problem of human morality: the person does not can kill another person. can not be considered a solid when a person kills another, even if this man provided for you right government. And in any case, the death penalty — people do not itself for itself clogged. There are people who it mattersout, admit it valid. And it’s creepy. On the other hand, is a purely legal approach. Let’s open the Criminal Code and we’ll see what the goals of punishment? re human! No way we can not allow the punishment was of like the place. And the death penalty — is a pure revenge. And this is the Middle Ages. "
More than 10 years of a moratorium on the death penalty is a condition of mandatory membership in the Council of Europe. Back in 2003, members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe called on the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus to impose a moratorium on the death penalty.

Vitebsk When was the case, we have found 13 people illegally convicted for criminal acts they did not commit . And one of them, Terenia was even shot by a court.
