Brest Region Court turned down the appeal of the head of the regional organization of the United Civil Party Uladzimir Vuyek against the ban of a picket under the slogan “For Free Elections without Lukashenka”.

The official reason for the ban was that a football match was allegedly to take place at the “Locomotive” stadium (the only place where opposition's actions are allowed) on the day of the action. However, Mr. Vuyek is sure that this was just a pretext for the ban, whereas the topic of the action. “As long as Aliaksandr Lukashenka is at power, we shouldn't have any hopes for real elections and fair trials at Belarusian courts, which aren't independent nowadays,” stated the activist.
