Centralny court of Minsk sentenced chairperson of the Council of BPF Youth Ales Kalita to 15 days of jail.


The verdict was made by Judge Pauliuchok, who found Ales guilty of disorderly conduct. The judge did not take evidence of Nasta Aleksandrovich seriously. The girl was stopped and was about to be seized on the street by strangers in black clothes. Ales Kalita, together with his colleague Paval Seradzenka, ran out of BPF office to help her. However, the judge took the evidence of policeman Yahor Hvardzeyenka, as the main proof of Kalita’s guilt.
