Vitsebsk opposition activist sues executive officials
Vitsebsk member of the Conservative Christian Party-Belarusian Popular Front Yan Dziarzhautsau has lodged complaints with three district courts, contesting bans on holding pickets issued by the city’s executive authorities between 21 and 25 February.
“I applied to Kastrychnitski, Pershamaiski and Chyhunachny district executive committees for staging pickets in authorized places. However, the pickets were banned. The first reason was reportedly their “inexpediency”. Another reason was that I failed to sign contracts with police, medical and housing departments”, says Mr. Dziarzhautsau.
