Urgent Appeal
 
Aleksandr Grunov (Belarus)
26 years old
 
Sentenced to death
 
His story
 
On April 8th 2014, the Supreme Court of Belarus confirmed the capital sentence to Aleksandr Grunov (Hrunou), 26, from Gomel, who killed a young student, Natalia Yemelyianchikova, after a quarrel.
A psychiatric examination which revealed his serious mental diseases, his confession, his admission of his own responsibilities and his full cooperation with the investigation could be mitigating factors of the death penalty. But unfortunately this did not switch the supreme judges’ verdict.
Aleksandr is deeply and sincerely regretful about the crime he accomplished. He more and more times has been imploring pardon before his victim’s mother. His execution could be dreadfully carried out at any moment, without any forewarning.

URGENT APPEAL SPREAD BY THE COMMUNITY OF SANT’EGIDIO TO SAVE THE LIFE OF EDUARD LYKOV, SENTENCED TO DEATH

 

Your Excellency the President of the Republic of Belarus

 

I am writing to express my deep concern over a ruling which sentenced to death Mr. Aleksandr Grunov, even though he is affected by evident mental illness, he is sincerely repented after the crime he committed and he has been asking for pardon from his victim’s family, he has been fully cooperating with the competent authorities and recognizing his guilt. Factors, all these, usually mitigating death sentences.

I urge you to intervene on his behalf to prevent this cruel and inhuman punishment from being meted out against him.

I implore you to ensure that this cruel and inhuman sentence is not carried out.

Respectfully

(signature and date)
