According to the BelaPAN news agency, Mazyr human rights activist Pavel Nazdra has been accused of violating military registration rules and is facing a fine.
‘I have been charged with failure to inform the local military registration department of employment changes, while my employer did inform the department in due time,’ said the activist.
Mr.Nazdra thinks the prosecution is caused by his activities in the civil society, namely his attempts to draw attention to the problem of exterminating stray pets.
The activist says it is another case when the local authorities use Article 25.8 of the Administrative Code to prosecute him for his civil activities.
