Belarus protests: Rights groups compile torture evidence

Human rights groups are preparing hundreds of testimonies to be sent to the UN committee against torture.

Human rights groups in Belarus say last week’s police violence was planned, systematic and ordered by the country’s leadership.

They have compiled 500 cases of torture during the protests that followed the recent disputed election.

But while victims demand justice, they have no court to turn to, as Al Jazeera’s Step Vaessen reports from Minsk.
