Today Zavodski court of Minsk tried Aliaksandra Klimovich, who was detained during the summer camp of BPF Youth near Ivatsevichy.

During the hearing the judge read out a report drawn up by Ivatsevichy police. None of the policemen who had drawn up the report appeared in court. The judge saw rude mistakes in the report and sent it back for revision. During the week 14 members of BPF Youth will be tried on the charge of “disorderly conduct”. All of them were detained during the summer camp near Ivatsevichy.

The trial over Ilya Bohdan was postponed yesterday because the witness from Ivatsevichy who was present during detention did not manage to appear at the trial. The trial was postponed to October 8th.
