The UN Secretary General registered a note on the denunciation by Belarus of the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The above actions were completed on November 8, 2022. Thus, the last day for filing complaints to the Human Rights Committee for Belarusians should be February 8, 2023.
Due to the fact that there is little time left to file complaints and the disappearance of one of the most important opportunities to prove your case, it is very important to take into account all the features of communication and submission of reports to the HRC. That is why we collected a number of practical questions and asked an expert on international human rights law and the UN system, Natalya Matskevich, to answer them.
