Police charge another participant in students’ protest
Pavel Siarhei, an activist who was involved in a protest staged by the students of the Belarusian State University on December 2, will stand trial on charges of participating in an unauthorized demonstration (Part 1, Art. 23.34 of the Administrative code).
The trial is scheduled for December 22.
Earlier, police officers brought similar charges against Yauhen Amialkou and Hleb Vaikul, who were also involved in the protest. The demonstrators asked to cancel an earlier decision to charges fees for retaking exams at the country’s leading university.
Some students of the BSU Faculty of Philology, including Hleb Vaikul, have also been asked to provide explanations for their involvement in the protest.
