Brest Prosecutor’s Office turns down complaint by Young Front activist Mikhas Ilyin
Brest Leninski Prosecutor’s Office turns down complaint by Young Front member Mikhas Ilyin, urging to prosecute unknown policemen and plain clothes persons who beat the activist during the 17 September picket in downtown Brest.
Mikhas Ilyin says the decision is not fair, since the prosecutor’s supervision was far from being complete.
‘The checkup failed to identify the person guilty of violating Ilyin’s civil rights. The person threatened Ilyin with reprisal and was the initiator of all the illegal actions against Ilyin.’ says human rights expert Raman Kisliak.
The activist is going to appeal the decision.
