As reported by lawyer Volha Bezbarodkina, that the ruling on the ten-day arrest for Mr. Korban hasn't yet entered into force. She has appealed it to the Minsk City Court.

During the administrative proceedings in the Frunzenski District Court in Minsk on August 12 the lawyer insisted on the illegality of the arrest of the activist due to presence of obvious procedural violations, and asked the judge to dismiss the case due to lack of evidence of an offense in accordance with Art. 9.6 paragraph 2 of the Process-Executive Code of Administrative Offenses.


"He was charged with using obscene language in a public place. But in court I said that a person with a higher education (Aleh Korbban graduated from Kiev University, majoring in "psychology") cannot use dirty words while walking,” said the lawyer. “This is an obvious fabrication!”

Let us remind that the leader of the public association "Alternative" Aleh Korban was arrested in the morning on August 12 in Minsk near the metro station "Kamennaya Horka". At the Frunze District Police Department he was charged with "disorderly conduct", article. 17.1 of the Administrative Code. The Frunzenski District Court of Minsk sentenced him to ten days of arrest.
