Salihorsk District Court didn't grant the appeal of civic activist Uladzimir Shyla against the ban of the picket he intended to hold on Freedom Day, 25 March. The trial was lead by the deputy-head of the court Ala Trafimchuk.

The defendant's interests were represented by the lawyer of Salihorsk District Executive Committee Aliaksei Strapko. The trial was also attended by policemen and workers of the prosecutor's office.

In his speech during the trial Uladzimir Shyla pointed that the decision on this case had been already known to all sides and the only aim of his appeal was a documentary registration of the human rights violation, which would allow for the punishment of the guilty in the future, including by means of lustration.
