Kiriljuk and Kämmer on the situation of independent lawyers in Belarus

Police investigators have been given carte blanche, the accused and defence lawyers are deprived of almost all rights. What remains is solidarity among colleagues, in Belarus and internationally. A conversation with lawyer Mikhail Kirilyuk, member of the Coordination Council of the Belarusian Opposition, and his Berlin colleague Ralf Kämmer.
