Human Rights Day action in Hrodna

On 29 January, Hrodna Regional Court is expected to hear a joint appeal filed by local human rights defenders Viktar Sazonau, Uladzimir Khilmanovich and Raman Yurhel to challenge the verdict pronounced by the city’s Leninski District Court back on 5 January.

The activists were fined 1.5 mln each for posting a photograph with portraits of Ales Bialiatski and brochures of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights taken on 10 December, the Human Rights Day.

To show their solidarity with the convicted activists and stress the absurdity of the sentence, similar photos were taken and posted online by human rights defenders of other Belarusian regions, including Homel and Navapolatsk.
