On 13 June the lawyer Vera Stramkouskaya visited the public activist Alexander Atroshchankau in the remand prison in Akrestsin Street.

‘On 12 June he felt heartache. An ambulance was called and he was taken to Minsk city hospital #2 for examination. Now Alexander is better. He passes greetings to all friends and relatives,’ said Vera Stramkouskaya.

The lawyer filed the cassation appeal to Minsk city court against the verdict to Atroshchankau. Bear in mind that the activist was punished with 15 days of jail for disrespect to court, which he had allegedly demonstrated during the trial of 14 participants of an entrepreneurs’ meeting. Atroshchankau pleads innocence.
