Shchuchyn: pensioner to be tried for memorial cross
police drew up a report
of administrative offense against
pensioner Veranika Sebastsyanovich, a member
of the Union of Poes in Belarus which is
unregistered by the authorities. The
82-year-old was mailed
a copy of the report, in which she is charged with holding
an unsanctioned rally.
In May Sebastsyanovich was a participant of the establishment of a memorial cros in the hamlet of Rachkaushchyna not far from Bakshty (Shchuchyn district) in memory of a soldier of Armija Krayova (Polish resistance movement) Anatol Radzivonik who was murdered by the NKVD. The cross was placed on a private land. It is unclear why the pensioner is considered to be the organizer of the memorial action. The case was sent to the Shchuchyn District Court and it still unclear when it will be considered.
