Supreme Court turns down Stefanovich’s travel ban appeal
The Supreme Court of Belarus has dismissed a complaint lodged by human rights defender Valiantsin Stefanovich against Judge Alena Siamak of Minsk Tsentralny District Court, who has evaded considering his appeal against foreign travel restrictions for nearly four months.
“Your complaint against actions by the state body was not considered by Judge Alena Siamak in due time. However, this was caused by objective reasons…” says a reply issued by the Supreme Court.
