The trial of Vitsebsk opposition activist Siarhei Kavalenka facing charges of alleged violation of house arrest restrictions is expected to be resumed at 2 p.m. tomorrow, after the defendant was taken to hospital.

Human rights defenders, as well as the activist’s relatives, say his health is at risk after a prolonged hunger strike at local detention center.

During the first day of the trial, the court session was postponed for two times, so that Siarhei Kavalenka, who is said to have lost 23 kilograms, could receive medical aid right in the courtroom.
