Ex-political prisoner Ales Kirkevich is required to pay fine for electoral meeting
On 6 January court marshals paid an unexpected visit
to Ales's apartment. They demanded that he paid a fine to which he had been
sentenced last year for holding an electoral meeting of Hrodna residents with
presidential candidate Mikalai Statkevich. After the meeting Kirkevich and some
more Hrodna activists had been sentenced to pay fines of 700,000 rubles for
participation in “unauthorized rally”.
