National-Bolshevik Dzianis Sakhar

On 5 September the activist of the National-Bolshevik movement was found guilty of disobeying the lawful demands of the police (Article 23.4 of the Administrative Code) and fined 4 million rubles.

The case was considered in the Minsk District Court by Judge Andrei Bialila.

Bear in mind that on 10 August Dzianis Sakhar was detained by the police during a field training near the Voukavichy water reservoir in the Minsk district. Along with him, the police detained 11 more youths with the use of physical force and tear gas. All of them were guarded to the Zhdanovichy District Police Department by six cars and charged with "drinking alcohol in a public place".

The trial of Dzianis Sakhar was twice postponed due to the failure of the witnesses to timely come to the court. However, today the activist has been found guilty under Article 23.4 of the Code of Administrative Offenses and sentenced to a fine of 4 million rubles.
