VILNIUS (Reuters) – Belarus opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya said on Tuesday there was no doubt dissident journalist Roman Protasevich had been tortured, as she called for tougher sanctions against Belarus.
In a video posted online on Monday, Protasevich, detained when a Ryanair plane was forced to land in Minsk, says he is in good health. The comments were immediately dismissed by his allies as having been made under duress.
