On the 2nd of February, Belarusian musician and activist Igor Koktysh was released from the pre-trial detention centre in Ukraine where he has been held for two and a half years. He has greatly thanked Amnesty International for its support.
Our work really does change the lives of individuals. The outcome of Amnesty's work to protect and campaign for Human Rights is often not achieved months or years down the track. But when we do hear that someone detained was released, someone missing was found and someone in imminent danger is safe no matter how long it took, relief and fulfillment permeates throughout the people who helped Amnesty International make a difference.
