Mahiliou Regional Court turned down an appeal by activist Siarhei Yeudakimovich against an earlier verdict by Babruisk Town Court, which, in turn, dismissed his claim to protect honour and dignity, following a series of publications in the local state-run newspaper ‘Babruiskaye Zhytssio back in 2008, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports.

Mr. Yeudakimovich argued that the journalists’ negative coverage of the activist’s election campaign affected the outcome of the general election.
