Barysau activists appeal formation of district electoral committee
A number of Barysau activists have lodged a complaint with Barysau District Court against the decision by a joint meeting of Barysau district council of deputies and Barysau district executive committee, depriving local activist Maryna Statkevich of her right to be elected member of district electoral committee, despite her nomination by a group of citizens.
According to local human rights activist Aleh Matskevich, the complaint urges the court to find the decision illegal.
Under the current legislation, the verdict is to be delivered within three days.
