On 21 October, Judge Dzmitry Uloha of Homel Regional Court refused to consider a complaint by Young Front activist Andrei Tsianiuta against an unlawful arrest verdict for alleged illegal distribution of People’s Assembly leaflets on 20 September.

The complaint was left unconsidered due to the expiry of the period for appealing the verdict. However, the activist could not submit an appeal, as he was serving a 10-day arrest at the time.

“The Judge has evidently denied justice. He should address the Supreme Court. There were cases when regional courts considered complaints lodged by opposition activists after serving their prison terms. The law permits a court to cancel the period of submitting appeals in case of a reasonable excuse,” says human rights defender Leanid Sudalenka.
