The Barysau District Executive Committee prohibited the local human rights defenders to hold a picket under the slogan “Freedom to Ales Bialiatski!” near one of large departments store of Barysau on 4 August.

The application for the picket was filed by human rights defenders Aleh Matskevich and Maryna Statkevich. They also applied to the Barysau District Police Department, the district hospital and the communal services in order to conclude agreements for guarding the action, medical assistance to its participants and cleaning of the territory after its end.

All three gave the same answer: “We cannot conclude an agreement with you due to your failure to implement the requirements of Article 5of the Law of the Republic of Belarus of 30 December 1997 “About mass events in the Republic of Belarus”.

The executive committee gave the same explanation for its prohibition, without providing any details.
