In 1996, regardless of the danger and discrimination, he founded the human rights organization Wjasna (also Wesna ), which supports political prisoners and their families. For this he was honored with the Homo-Homini-Preis 2005 and 2007 with the Per-Anger-Preis .
Bjaljazki was arrested on August 4, 2011 and sentenced three and a half months later, on November 24, 2011, to four and a half years in a prison camp for tax evasion . The European Union and the USA criticized the process as "political staging". The human rights organization Amnesty International also called for Byalyatski to be released. Observers assessed the state of health of Ales Byalyatski, who is in custody, as worrying.
On June 21, 2014, Byalyazki was surprisingly released early from custody.
