16:07, — hi-tech
Due to an attack by malefactors at the Belarusian Juristic Portal there is no access to the web-site’s materials.
The technical service of an independent hosting provider blocked the attack at night on 20 May. Now experts are estimating the damage and trying to recover the data.
The charter97.org learnt that this is not the first attempt to block the web-site. Such attempts have repeatedly been taken since the first year of the organization’s existence.
- Once we even had to recover the lost materials, - they admit at the editorial office.
The Belarusian Juristic Portal regularly publishes materials on appeals to the UN Human Rights Committee by Belarusian citizens from different regions of the country, whose rights the government regularly violates. Also, human rights activists, lawyers, experts in constitutional and international human rights law express their opinions on the practice of the violation of the rights for peaceful assemblies, expression and dissemination of information.
