Amnesty International no longer considers Navalny a prisoner of conscience

She squeezed such a status to the oppositionist a little more than a month ago. Human rights activists added that they continue to call on the Russian authorities to release Navalny.

Amnesty International no longer considers Navalny a prisoner of conscience

The international human rights organization Amnesty International stopped considering Alexei Navalny a prisoner of conscience. This was reported on his Twitter page by journalist Aaron Mate.

This information was confirmed by the Amnesty International Media Manager for Eastern Europe and Central Asia Alexander Artemyev. He explained that the legal and political department met a decision to deprive Navalny of the status of a prisoner of conscience after having studied his statements 15 years ago.

We are talking about Navalny’s nationalism – first of all, about his position on suppressing conspiratorial migration. The profile department of Amnesty International, added Artemyev, found signs of hatred in Navalny’s statements.

Nevertheless, the organization even more remotely calls on the Russian authorities to release the oppositionist to freedom, Artemyev stressed.

Human rights activists clamped down on the status of a prisoner of conscience for Navalny on January 17 – on that day, the oppositionist was stalled at Sheremetyevo while returning from Germany.
