Vitsebsk: trial on Kavalenka's appeal (video)
On 10 April the consideration of the appeal against
three-year personal restraint to Siarhei Kavalenka continued at the Vitsebsk Region Court.
The hearing was held in a factually closed regime: only Kavalenka's wife and
three activists were admitted to it. The remaining people (several dozens) were
told that there were no spare places for them.
The court ordered a comprehensive psychiatric examination of Mr. Kavalenka and suspended the proceedings till receiving its results. On 11 April Mr. Kavalenka was taken to the psychiatric hospital "Navinki" in Minsk.
