Orsha authorities ban 14 pickets for free elections
Orsha town executive committee has banned a series of pickets scheduled for 31 May.
None of the 14 applications has been sanctioned by local executive officials.
According to local activists of the United Civil Party, the bans refer to the applicants’ failure to sign contracts with the town’s police, medical and housing services.
Orsha authorities have not authorized a single opposition mass event since 2007.
