Oslo, 28th November 2011

Your excellency,

The non-political association of writers, PEN International, is condemning the sentence given to Ales Byalyatski, which appears to be part of an attempt to clamp down on opposition activism in Belarus. We are calling for his immediate and unconditional release.

Thanking you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Fredrik Giertsen
