Square sentences left in force again
Minsk city court considered appeals of Square convicts for more than an hour on June 24.
Pavel Vinahradau, Ales Kirkevich, Dzmitry Drozd, Aliaksandr Pratasenia and Uladzimir Khamichenka appealed their sentences. Collegium of judges declined all the appeals. Sentences to all five convicts were left in force, Radio Liberty informs.
OSCE representatives attended the trial. Human rights defenders think this is the reason why the collegium negotiated for such a long time.
