Navapolatsk. Action of solidarity with Hrodna human rights defenders

The Navapolatsk activist Yauhen Parchynski was summonsed to the police for photos with portraits of Bialiatski at the entrance of the Navapolatsk City Court. Another participant of the action, Siarhei Malashonak, says he is ready to any development of the events, including a trial and a fine.

The police showed to Yauhen Parhynski photos that were printed from websites:

The head of the public security department Yury Peniaz showed me the print-outs and put down my explanations. I didn't refute anythings: yes, there was an action with Ales Bialiatski and the Hrodna human rights defenders who had been fined on the basis of such "Internet evidence" of an unauthorized event. My explanations were put down in a police report, but I don't know whether an administrative case has been brought.

The action was held in Navapolatsk on 9 January: two activists got photographed with portraits of Ales Bialiatski on the porch of the city court. The Navapolatsk coordinator of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Siarhei Malashonak was also photographed at the entrance of the city police department. However, he hasn't received summons from police so far.
