UCP Vice-Head Not Let Abroad
On 7 July vice-head of the UCP Party Liudmila Hraznova received the following letter from Minsk Partyzanski Borough Passport Office:
“Being guided by Article 5 of the Law of the Republic of Belarus of 2 June 1992 “About the order of departure from the Republic of Belarus and the entrance in Belarus by citizens of the Republic of Belarus” your right to leave Belarus is temporary limited.”
The circumstances that don’t let Liudmila Hraznova go abroad are connected to her political activity: in April 2004 she was among the organizers of “Chernobyl Way” rally and was fined 225 basic values (more than $2 000) for alleged violation of part 2 of Article 167.1 of the Code of Administrative Violations (violation of the order and organization of mass actions) by Minsk Savetski Borough Court. Though Liudmila Hraznova complained against this verdict, the court didn’t satisfy her complaint.
