Yanina Liasneuskaya appealed against court verdict on children's coloring books
Yanina Liasneuskaya, an activist of the “Our House”
civil campaign, appealed the verdict of the Orsha District and City Court
concerning the distribution of children's coloring books which allegedly
promoted violence to the Vitsebsk Region Court.
Bear in mind that the local police issued the charges to the activist on the basis of the children's coloring book “My father is a policeman” they found in her bag. The book illustrates the unlawful use of physical violence by police officers. As a result of the court hearings on 31 July the case against the activist was dropped due to the expiry of the terms of consideration. Yana Liasneuskaya disagrees with such formulation and is convinced that it must be dropped due to her innocence.
