Exiled human rights defender Alena Tankachova asks to reduce period of expulsion
Human rights defender Alena Tankachova, who was deported from Belarus in February 2015, has written to the Minsk city police department asking to reduce the period of entry ban and remove her from the blacklist.
The activist faced the ban as a result of a decision by the Pieršamajski district police department of Minsk. She can’t enter the country in the next three years. After she appealed against the decision, her stay in Belarus was extended until February 21. On that day, Alena Tankachova left the country for Lithuania.
