Baranavichy: Ryhor Hryk appeals against picket ban
On 3 November civil
activist Ryhor Hryk filed with the Baranavichy City Court an appeal against the
picket ban issued by the Baranavichy City Executive Committee. The activist
intended to hold a picket against the rapid growth of prices and the pauperization
of the population on 5 October. As it was stated in the CEC refusal, the
slogans that were stated in the picket application didn’t correspond to the
aims and notions, adopted in Article 2 of the Law “On Mass Events”.
Ryhor Hryk asks the court to:
1) find the picket ban, issued by the Baranavichy City Executive Committee, unlawful and violating his constitutional rights;
2) oblige the executive committee to ensure his right to hold a picket with the specified aims;
3) exact the court fee (35,000 rubles) from the Baranavichy City Executive Committee.
