Fines in Vialeika
On 2 October the trial of Uladzimir Maliarchuk, Ales Narkevich and Aliaksei Siudak came to an end. They were charged with holding an unauthorized rally on 1 September near the village of Krasny Berazhok, where some memorial crosses were installed. These crosses were dismantled by the district authorities in several days and an administrative case was brought against participants of the commemorative action.
At 3 p.m. the judge read the verdict, without explaining how the court could prove the ‘violation’.
Maliarchuk and Siudak were fined 1 050 000 rubles (about $) each and Narkevich – 750 000 rubles. Having read the verdict the judge left the court hall without raising his eyes.
