"Fair World" Liavontski Chapurnykh applied to the UN Human Rights
The reason for the appeal is the detention on 8 October 2011, the day of the People's Assembly in Brest. Mr. Chapurnykh was detained short before the action and sentenced to 5 days of arrest by the Leninski District Court of Brest for disseminating information about the event. Appeals against the verdict to higher court instances brought no results.
