New Trials in Vitsebsk
Today in Vitsebsk two more youth activists were judged. Tatsiana Lipskaya fined Ales Dzeravianka 620 000 rubles (about 300 US dollars) under article 23.4 of the Administrative Code (disobedience to legal demands of the police).
As HRC Viasna learned, the second report, which was composed against the youngster for participation in unauthorized picketing, has not been considered yet. The judge said that a separate trial would be held on it.
Judge Lipskaya also fined the youth activist from Polatsk Henadz Sharakh about 15 US dollars for illegal picketing during the trial of Valery Shchukin.
