Three participants of solidarity rallies expelled from Minsk Linguistic University
On 6 February, three activists of the European Belarus opposition movement were expelled from Minsk State Linguistic University, following their conviction for involvement in a series of rallies of solidarity with Belarusian political prisoners.
Aliaksandr Saldatsenka, Aliaksandr Vialitchanka and Mikita Kavalenka were sentenced to arrests ranging between 7 and 15 days for protesting on 25 and 26 December, and later on 8 January.
The expulsion was preceded by an official warning addressed to the students by the University’s Rector Mrs. Natallia Baranava. The warnings have been appealed at the prosecuting authorities and the Ministry of Education.
