Leonid Sudalenko: being rights defender is tougher than being an astronaut

An interview with a professional lawyer, a well-known legal labour inspector of the REP Trade Union for the Gomel Region, Laureate of the 2017 Charter97 Award in the nomination "For Personal Courage". Leonid, who is father of four sons, tells the story of his life and struggle.

"While giving me the Charter97 Award, Andrei Sannikov (a presidential candidate at 2010 election; now, coordinator of the European Belarus public campaign, – note of the REP News) told me, 'You are doing a very great job for the future. It's a matter of time that now Belarus' Govt ignores the decisions of the UN Human Rights Committee. They have no time limit and will be enforced sooner or later.' In fact, out of 250 complaints since 1992, which have been registered by the Committee, a third was filed by me. A colossal work id behind them," Leonid Sudalenko said in his interview.
