Trial on Filip Kirdun’s case to continue at 9 a.m. on 16 November
The trial of Filip Kirdun, charged with the use of
obscene language towards police officers, continued today at the Frunzenski
District Court of Minsk. Judge Liudmila Lapo agreed to question policemen
Aliaksandr Birchanka and Siarhei Dounar, who had taken fingerprints from the
defendant. They stated that he had called them “Lukashenka’s lackeys”, and
police officer Sviatlana Kunitskaya, who is in charge of the procedure of
dactylography in the Frunzenski District Police Department of Minsk, stated
that Filip’s parents had paid a visit to the police department on 14 November
and threatened to her.
Filip Kirdun, in his turn, addressed Aliaksandr Lukashenka with an open letter. There he emphasizes that the police had used groundless violence towards him and tried to give a political coloring to the case in order to mask their lawless actions.
