Taciana Reviaka

HRD, President
Belarusian Human Rights House

Our human rights movement is relatively young, but its short history is an everlasting chain of persecution, courts, work dismissals, arrests, prisons, forced emigration and smear campaigns.

- Tatiana Reviaka

Taciana Reviaka is the president of the Belarusian Human Rights House and a council member of the Human Rights Centre Viasna, of which Ales Bialiatski is the chairman.

After the wave of violence that followed the presidential election of December 2010, the human rights situation in Belarus deteriorated rapidly and remains poor after the crackdown. Human rights defenders (HRDs) are subjected to intimidation and harassment, including judicial harassment, restrictions on freedom of expression, association and assembly, movement, arbitrary detention and ill-treatment.
