Brest human rights defender appeals restrictions on peaceful assembly at Constitutional Court
Brest human rights defender Uladzimir Vialichkin has lodged a complaint with the Constitutional Court, appealing a decision by the city’s executive committee that imposed inadmissible restrictions on the freedom of peaceful assembly.
The activist argues that the decision violates the citizens’ constitutional rights. It first of all deals with a requirement to sign special contracts with local police, medical and housing services, as the absence of such contracts does not allow activists to stage mass events in the city. A similar complaint has also been submitted to Brest regional executive committee.
