Protest held in front of Belarusian Embassy to Armenia in support for  blog writer Lapshin

ArmInfo. A protest was held in front of the Belarusian Embassy to Armenia in support for  Russian-Israeli blog writer Alexander Lapshin, who was arrested by the Belarusian authorities on Baku's demand. 

The protesters demanded to meet with Belarusian Ambassador to Armenia  Igor Nazaruk for handing over a letter to him, however the diplomat  refused to meet them. Youth Branch of ARF Dashanktsutyun and "Nikol  Aghbalyan" student union initiated the protest. The letter  particularly reads: "Upon Azerbaijan's demand citizen of Israel and  Russia Alexander Lapshin was detained in Minsk on December 15. He is  accused of visiting Nagorno Karabakh without receiving 'permission'  from Azerbaijan. Lapshin is included in Baku's black list and a  criminal case is pressed against him for violating territorial  integrity of Azerbaijan. We demand from the law enforcement bodies of  Belarus not to give in to Azerbaijan's deceptive accusation and  respect territorial integrity of Nagorno-Karabakh and people's right  to self- determination. We urge Belarusian authorities to take an  unbiased and comprehensive approach".

Earlier the Chamber of Advocates of Armenia formed a professional  group, which found Alexander Lapshin's extradition on the demand of  the chief prosecutor of the Republic of Azerbaijan intolerable as it  contradicts to the claims of the international and intrastate legal  acts.  

In the middle of December the citizen of the Russian Federation  Alexander Lapshin has been arrested in the Republic of Belarus with  the purpose of extradition on the demand of Azerbaijan for visiting  Nagorno-Karabakh and making notes about those visitations in his  blog. 

General Prosecutor's Office of Belarus informed earlier that the  issue of extraditing Lapshin to Azerbaijan is being studied but no  decision has been made yet.
