Slonim residents appeal Freedom Day meeting ban
Slonim residents Mikalai Radkevich and Ivan Sheha have lodged a complaint with Slonim District Prosecutor’s Office and Hrodna Regional Executive Committee, appealing a ban imposed on holding a meeting on Freedom Day.
In particular, the appeal says: “Guided by Par. 4 Art. 5 of the Mass Events Code, we sent a registered letter to Slonim district executive committee on 7 March 2012, with an application for holding a meeting in a location authorized by the local authorities, i.e. in the town park 18 days before the expected date of the event. The response we have received dismissed our application, referring to the fact it was registered at the committee on 11 March. We believe the application was dismissed illegally.”
