Navapolatsk. Action of solidarity with Hrodna human rights defenders

The Navapolatsk activists held an action of solidarity with the Hrodna human rights defenders Uladzimir Khilmanovich, Viktar Sazonau and Raman Yurhel who had been fined for posting to the web a photo of themselves with portraits of Ales Bialiatski and brochures of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

"We want to see the reaction of the Navapolatsk police to our action", said the Navapolatsk activist Siarhei Malashanok.

Bear in mind that on 5 January 2013 the Leninski District Court of Hrodna
punished the Hrodna human rights defenders for a photo on the web, in which they can be seen holding portraits of the imprisoned human rights defender Ales Bialiatski and brochures of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The reason for the trial were the violation reports drawn up by the officers of the Leninski District Police Department of Hrodna, who considered this media fact as a violation of Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Offenses, "violation of the procedure of organizing or holding mass events".
