The individual communication is filed under the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

The complainant claims that the Belarusian authorities violated the right to freedom of association under Article 22 of the ICCPR by issuing a written warning to BAJ on 8 July 2021 following an order of the Minister of Justice, as well as by Supreme Court’s ruling of 27 August 2021 to liquidate the organization.

Andrei Bastunets has been heading the Belarusian Association of Journalists since 2015 and was re-elected its chairman in April 2021.
