Two people at risk of execution

Belarus is the last European nation to maintain the death penalty and this urgent action is asking you to take part in the campaign please.  In addition to the penalty itself, the execution is carried out in secrecy with neither the family or their legal representatives told when it will be nor where where they are buried afterwards.

    I understand that two people have been condemned to death in your country, Belarus, and that the authorities will not even have the decency and humanity to let their families know when this has happened, and where the victims are buried.
    This is a barbaric and outmoded punishment for the 21st century!
    I urge your government to reconsider and instead to use appropriate gaol sentences.
